CARBONDALE, Pa. (AP) – The cops have been buzz-ted.

A swarm of bees has forced officers at a Pennsylvania police department out of their station.

The (Scranton) Times-Tribune reports Carbondale police had to abandon the station Tuesday when the bees arrived.

Most of the buzzing insects settled into cracks and crevices in the third-floor brick exterior of City Hall, but others managed to get inside the first-floor police station.

A beekeeper removed more than 400 bees on Tuesday while officers worked from other offices in the building. The expert was expected to return Wednesday to remove the rest of the bees from the building’s exterior.

The station was to remain closed to the public Wednesday.
