In the latest edition of unusual-things-that-were-stolen, we have Koi fishes that were taken from a pond in New Mexico. The total worth of the fishes stolen is quite considerable – precisely $4,000.
Turns out, the thief hit the pond of fish owner Melissa D’Angelico and took away 10 of her Koi. The incident was also captured on camera and police are conducting investigation on basis of the same. The video apparently shows a man using fish net to remove the fishes from the pond, reports KOB-TV.
Koi fish are colourful, ornamental versions of the common carp and can grow up to three feet (90 centimetres).
Police are trying to apprehend the perpetrator. However, no arrests have been made yet.
