See the tiny fish in the photo? The sly guy from Japan made a fortune on it and broke all the stereotypes about what a successful scam looks like. Having learned how much a small fish is worth, you will look at the jewelry thieves as amateurs.
In the Japanese city of Nakama in Fukuoka Prefecture, an unknown person broke into a store in the middle of the night. Armed with two flashlights and a butterfly net, the man decided to rob the building. True, he was not at all interested in money – he decided to take only the fish that swam in the store’s aquarium.
A man cannot be called a fool — the kidnapper took a Japanese rice fish, also known as medaka.
These fish are known for their hardiness and their ability to reproduce even in the harshest conditions. In fact, this fish is the first known vertebrate animal that was able to successfully reproduce in orbit. Medaka is also ideal pets and, depending on the breed, can be sold for a rather high price, the journalists explained. Sora News 24.

In the case of the store that the hijacker wanted to steal, the owner was growing Japanese rice fish to open a specialty store called Medaka Ikka (House of Medaki) on March 31.
However, the new business was not destined to open on this day, because four days before that, an unknown person literally caught about 300 small fish worth over 1.1 million yen (about 760 thousand rubles) in just five minutes.
This Japanese rice fish sells for 1,500 to 5,000 yen (1,000 to 3,500 rubles) apiece. Judging by the suspect’s ability to handle the network, it can be assumed that this was the work of a professional.
The security camera filmed the bandit in action. He deftly pulled fish out of the water, but he has not yet been found. The shop owner is desperate.
I think of it more as a kidnapping than a theft, said the store owner. – I feel more sad than angry. Now I cannot sleep at night.
