Theft of Beehives Since January 2011

Question

1) How many reports did the force receive regarding the thefts of beehives, hives, or honey beehives, between January 2011 and the latest date available, or for dates as close to this range as possible?

2) For each report please provide, where possible, the date location, name of offence and outcome.

3) Please also provide the value of the theft, or estimated value

Answer

Please find the information in the table below, this is based on a text search of the summary of the offence or the Modus Operandi (MO) on our crime recording system for the terms ‘Bee hive’ and ‘Honey Bee.’

The specific date has not been provided; the exemption applicable to this is Section 40(2), third party personal information. This is an Absolute exemption so therefore there is no requirement to conduct a harm or public interest test. Any information is exempt from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act if it relates to or is supplied by another individual and disclosure of that information would contravene any of the principles of the 1998 Data Protection Act, in this particular case, disclosure of this information would contravene Principles 1 and 2 of the Act, whereby personal data shall be processed fairly and lawfully and only obtained for one or more specified purpose or purposes. The combination of the specific date, offence location, offence description, the outcome, and the property value would identify individuals who have both reported offences and also allow offenders to become informed of which offences the Police are aware of.
