Police said the swarm was first spotted by police Lt. Michael Molinari, who summoned the beekeeper unit and Special Ops Truck 5 to the scene.

The Patrol Borough Staten Island ferry security unit also assisted with the bee capture, police said.

No injuries were reported from the insects, which were safely relocated.
