Thief uses bees to sting Kmart

Employees at the Sedalia Kmart were left to fight off a restroom full of bees as a thief made off with about $60 in stolen goods Monday.

The Sedalia Police Department received a phone call at 4:18 p.m. from a staff member at the Kmart store, at 1400 S. Limit Ave., who reported that a man had concealed several stolen items while in the men's bathroom.

It appears the man then released about 100 bees, apparently small honeybees, in the room and fled the store in the commotion that followed, according to police reports.

"I'm sure it was so we'll be more concerned about the bees than about anything else," said store Manager Lancy Ulrich.

A customer found the bees and reported them to a staff member, Mrs. Ulrich said. Staff then took insecticides off store shelves and killed the bees.

"We just set off a couple (bug) bombs in there and killed them," said Mrs. Ulrich.
