‘Little thieves’ caught in camera while stealing fish from aquarium
Mayyil (Kannur): A group of ‘little thieves’ who were in a habit of stealing ornamental fish were spotted after the house owner set up CCTV camera. They used to steal fish from an aquarium in the house.
More than 200 ornamental fish in the aquarium of M. V. Pratheesh residing near Kambil KLIC Hospital were stolen at different times. The fish costs more than Rs 10,000, said Pratheesh. As he noticed the number of fish diminishing day-by-day, he installed a CCTV camera.
Later when he checked the visuals, five boys seemingly less than 15 years old and wearing uniforms were seen stealing the fish. They used to jump over the three-metre-high compound wall to steal the fish. Following this, Pratheesh filed a complaint with Mayyil police along with the visuals of the robbery.
