Betta Fish Decapitated: Intruder Breaks Into Home, Decapitates Fish And Steals $10

Posted: Updated:

BOULDER, Colo. — A Boulder woman said she discovered a fish in her aquarium had been beheaded and $10 was missing from her wallet after she shooed an intruder from her apartment. Police say the 19-year-old woman awoke at about 2 a.m. and saw the stranger. She yelled at him to leave but didn't immediately call police because she assumed the man had mistakenly entered the wrong apartment. Police said the woman hadn't locked her door that night.

She then went to a friend's house, and when she returned later she discovered a Betta fish had been beheaded and money was missing from her wallet.

Betta fish are popular for freshwater aquariums. They have bright colors and long, flowing tails.

No arrests have been made. The woman's name wasn't released.
