Recommended Posts

''Bees produce the special honey after they pollinate the native New Zealand mānuka plant.''

Nothing to do with nectar, then.

Shouldn't Manuka have a capital M ?

Maybe @Janice meant "mãnuka" (sic)

I was referring to the internet article headline.

I dont understand grammar very well

Police sting nabs 200 litres of mānuka honey from organised crime group - National - NZ Herald News

Its a reporting, shocker IMO

"Colored" would fit, especially the parting quip

whats more, if the reporter had done any real investigating they would have used the term 300kgs rather than 200L

Its more dramatic

I thought the opening statement was trying a bit hard.

 

"After police swarmed an Otahuhu property with a search warrant, they made a sweet discovery."

Was the honey actually stolen? I'm guessing it was...

I hope they paid their $175 and registered with MPI so they can export it :rolleyes:

I'm wondering about this. No one was charged (therefore no evidence that it was stolen). Likewise, as a primary product, that can be harvested, it is difficult to claim that it's proceeds of crime.

 

They were planning to export it (like most beekeepers do). If it was packed in a compliant manner, they could make a healthy return, reducing their reliance on criminal behaviour. Seems counter productive really.

 

Seems like there is a whole lot of detail missing from this. Also, I did hear of a drum go missing from a storage shed. Maybe it's one and the same.

 

(Also, I could work for the herald, because I too can copy paste from google search).
