Stolen koi carp fish recovered by police


Have you had some large koi carp and goldfish stolen from your pond?

That is the question being asked by Lincolnshire Police today after a number of the creatures were recovered from an address in Holbeach following a routine arrest.

A police spokesman said; “We have not had any reports of thefts from aquatic centres so the fish may be from someone’s private pond.

“We are asking pond-keepers to check their ponds and contact us if they believe they may have been the victim of theft.”

To report a theft, call Lincolnshire Police on 101. If you believe the recovered fish may be yours and you would like further information, please email
