VALDOSTA, Ga. (WTXL) - Wild Adventures Theme Park is offering two Gold Season Passes as a reward for info leading to the safe return of their 50 pound bee statute that was somehow stolen from a I-75 billboard last week.
In a press release, park officials write that they are "bee-side themselves with grief" following the theft of their "bee-loved" statue, affectionately known as as Dwayne “The Bee” Johnson.
They say the 50 pound statute was stolen from a billboard on I-75 near Lake Park, Ga. on July 27. The billboard was advertising the new MEGABUGS! Adventure Encounters attraction at the park.
“This whole situation really stings,” said Adam Floyd, public relations manager.
Detectives with the Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office are now investigating the theft and are looking for any clues that might lead them to the bee bandits.
“A theft of this magnitude is bound to generate some buzz around town,” said Patrick Pearson, marketing director. “If you hear anyone droning on about how they have a giant bee in their backyard or garage, ‘bee’ a hero and please let the sheriff’s office know.”
Wild Adventures is offering two Gold Season Passes to the individual who provides information that leads to the safe return of Dwayne “The Bee” Johnson.
Anyone with a tip can call the Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office at (229) 671-2950.
