CANTON, N.C.—Realizing the skyrocketing street value of hatchery trout, criminal materminds recently scored a 600-pound haul from a Haywood County trout farm. Police are on the scent. “[Sunburst Trout Farm owners] Sally Eason and her husband went to harvest one of their ponds and found almost no fish. Eason says the thieves baited the water to get the fish to the surface and scooped them out of the water and into some sort of get-away vehicle. She says the locked facility showed no signs of a break-in.”Source link
