    Enhanced article says the fish were not recovered. Poor things probably died and were discarded.

    (Shaking head) .... Just what did these folks expect to gain by all of that? Were they going to try to resell those fish, or just keep them? In the end, it sounds like they killed them. What a shame. They could have made nice pets for legitimate fish keepers.

    Wanna bet they just get a slap on the wrist and are released?

    Be leave it or not that's a common practice! When I had a LFS I had a guy stuff a 6 inch Mata Mata turtle down his pants!!! The only reason I know who it was is that a friend told me his name and he turned out to be one of my competitors who also owned a fish store!! How's that for style!!!

    Hopefully it was a form of "snapping" turtle

    That was a turtle, bad enough, I hate thieves, but this guy somehow had time to fill bags with tank water and net the fish out...must have been a slow day at that LFS, I know the girlfriend/accomplice was a distraction, but geez...

    It sounds like the employee had suspected something while it was going on -- why didn't she confront the guy and stop him while he was stealing the fish, instead of letting him walk out the door with them? She could have called the police or her supervisor right then and there. Especially if the girlfriend was asking a bunch of pointless questions to distract her, that should have sent up a red flag. Somebody was either afraid, or not paying that much attention ... Two people against one, I guess it could have gotten ugly. Who knows how people will react when they're caught red-handed. The guy or gal could have had a concealed weapon. One really isn't sure what to do in that kind of situation -- they could have gotten violent and broken a bunch of tanks and who knows what else?

    And would have snapped him in just the "right" place! That would have been the perfect karma.

    They could also have come prepared, had bags of water concealed in his clothing. Then all he would have to do is net the fish. Wouldn't put it past them
