EVERSON — Twenty-eight honeybee hives were stolen in rural Whatcom County by the owner of Guilmette’s Busy Bees, a local business that makes a popular wildflower honey.

Joseph Eugene “Skip” Guilmette, 31, won’t serve time in jail for the felony theft. Instead, he has to repay $14,450 to the rival farmer for hauling off seven pallets of hives, bees and honey with his forklift, Superior Court Judge Deborra Garrett ruled last week.
