Slimy Smugglers Steal Expensive Fish from Garden Center near Sevenoaks

Published by:


In the early hours of Wednesday, July 8th, crooks stole hundreds of British Pounds’ worth of Koi Carp from the Polhill Garden Centre on London Road, outside of Badgers Mount. After cutting a fence, the slippery criminals were able to steal several Koi Carp (some possibly as large as 85 cm in length) from a 12,000 liter pond belonging to Maidenhead Aquatics, a business operating in the center. An unnamed staff member said, “we don’t know exactly how many of the fish they’ve stolen just yet. It’s a big pond and there were quite a few fish in it, but we don’t think they took very many.” Although it was not the most lucrative of heists, this crime was one of the more unusual thefts in recent memory.


Police are currently investigating the theft, which happened around 2:45AM, and reviewing closed-circuit tv footage for clues. If you have any information, please call police at 101.
