Nik Lefore had 5 hives removed from pallets and stolen off of Keyes Rd West of Snelling, CA in Merced County on 01/25/2020. Nik found a couple of his hives in a ditch on the side of the road (Cox Ferry Rd) a few miles from where they were stolen. It is believed the hives weren’t strapped down and they fell off of the suspects’ vehicle. Nik found a box mixed in with his that is not his. It was painted the same as his but had someone else’s information on it. The box was 8 frame and didn’t contain any frames. Nik only runs 10 frame equipment. The box contains the name Kevin Peavey, 209-480-0306, Hughson, CA. If anyone has any information or recognizes this person’s name and information please contact Nik at 509-386-4232.
