Waters had noticed the area where the fish were kept looked “disheveled” the previous Thursday, but he didn’t think much of it at the time.
“We kind of chalked it up to raccoons,” Waters said.
But when workers arrived Friday morning, they found whole bins and aquariums emptied of the fish, which are used in special ponds that can be a centerpiece of a landscaped yard or garden. Waters is not sure what the thieves would want with the fish, but believes it must have taken multiple people a significant amount of time to capture and move dozens of fish overnight.
