Teen kills goldfish witnesses16/02/2011 - 16:00:47
An American teenager killed three goldfish in the house he burgled because he didn't want to "leave any witnesses."
The unnamed 16 year old, who broke into a home in Chicago with two accomplices, told police he decided to poison the fish because they saw them steal electrical equipment, an air gun, jewellery and a safe.
When the residents came home they found hot sauce, mustard, ketchup and spices had been poured into the tank.
Sgt Mike Hernandez told the Daily Herald: "It's a little disturbing. According to the police report, he looked at the fish tank and said, 'We can't leave any witnesses'."
The teenager is charged with burglary and animal cruelty and a 15 year old and 17 year old also face burglary charges.
