Big Mouth Billy Bass thwarts Minnesota burglar

Posted: Updated:

ROCHESTER, Minn. (AP) - Big Mouth Billy Bass apparently got the best of a would-be burglar in Minnesota.
    
Authorities in Rochester say the motion-activated singing fish apparently scared off an intruder who tried to break into the Hooked on Fishing bait and tackle shop.
    
The novelty bass had been hung near the door and would start singing "Take Me to the River" whenever someone entered the shop.
    
The Olmsted County Sheriff's Office says the fish was found on the floor after the intruder knocked it down while breaking the door to get in late Sunday or early Monday.
    
Sgt. Tom Claymon says the would-be burglar left without stealing anything, including cash that had been left in "a very visible spot."
