All's fair in love and war -- but stealing a fish is a judgment call.

A distraught woman wandered into the Ingleside Police Station on Sunday reporting her ex-boyfriend had somehow entered her home. Missing were an iPod, money, jewelery -- and a fish.

Calls to the station revealed that the fish was "gold and white," of indeterminate size, and was "missing from his bowl."

So, unless the man in question transferred the fish from one bowl to another bowl, or left with Goldie in a towel, things are looking bad for said fish.

The ex might be on the hook not just for a fishnapping but a possible a possible fish kill.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
