Police on Wednesday said that 18 swimsuits belonging to girls had been stolen at a primary school in Koshu City, Yamanashi Prefecture.
According to police and the school, students discovered that the swimsuits, some bags and goggles were missing when they came to school around 7:50 a.m. The items had been left in an unlocked cabinet at the back of the classroom.

Police said a security company which monitors the school had not received any reports of intruders.
