RIGGINS -- Imagine hauling in a big Idaho salmon, only to have it stolen from your cooler while you slept.  That's exactly what happened over the weekend in Riggins.

Jeff and Dustin from Hailey went fishing Saturday on the Salmon River near Riggins.  They caught several fish.

But some time between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m. Sunday, all the fish were stolen out of a cooler in the back of Dustin's truck, which was parked outside a hotel in Riggins.

The Idaho County sheriff says at least three fish thefts were reported over the weekend. He says it's a crime that doesn't happen often and one they are taking very seriously. The sheriff's office is working on a couple of leads.
