Hardest working criminal in New Zealand?

There must be an easier way of making a criminal living. Two hundred beehives and 10 tonnes of honey were stolen from a beekeeper (Robert Davidson) in South Island, New Zealand last year. He thinks they were stolen to order and shipped to the North Island.

My best guess is that they were stolen for a bet and that the bet must have been more than the value of the stolen goods. In a population of three million, with a fairly tight-knit community of beekeepers, how on earth did they get away with it!
