A man has claimed first prize in a fishing contest with a fish he stole from the local aquarium in Guernsey.
Matthew Clark, 29, placed first at the Bailiwick Bass Club Open Competition after entering with a giant bass weighing 13lb 13oz, beating the runner-up who managed 10lb 3oz.
Clark claimed the £800 prize and posed with the winning fish.
However, he was caught out when competitor Shane Bentley thought he had seen the bass elsewhere.
According to The Mirror, Bentley said: "My wife and I took the kids to the aquarium and saw the bass in the tank. It stood out because it had some very distinct markings on its head.
"Next morning, I went to the aquarium and asked to see the bass with the markings. But neither myself nor the owner could find it anywhere."
Contest organisers and the police were then informed, by which time Clark had sold the fish to a fishmonger.
Police identified the stolen bass by matching the fish carcass to the missing fish.
Clark has since been sentenced to 100 hours of community service after admitting burglary and fraud.
