ST. JOHN’S, N.L. – Police are investigating after Japanese koi and other exotic fish worth about $2,500 were stolen from a man-made pond in southeastern Newfoundland.

RCMP in Holyrood say 11 fish were taken from a property in Brigus Junction sometime over the past three months.

One of the missing fish — a butterfly koi — is 19 years old.

The Japanese koi are up to half a metre long, and four comet fish were also stolen.

Police are asking anyone with information to call the Holyrood RCMP detachment or Crime Stoppers.
