Chiba Prefectural Police have arrested two 33-year-old men in connection with a home-invasion robbery in which 2.2 million yen and two rings valued at 820,000 yen were stolen.

According to police, Sho Ishida, a self-employed resident of Kimitsu City, and Ryo Urimine, a company employee from Ichihara City, broke the first-floor window of a house in Chiba City’s Chuo Ward between 10:35 p.m. and 11 p.m. on May 3, Kyodo News reported. The male home owner uses the building as his office, but was away at the time.

The pair were arrested on Monday.

Police said there have been 209 burglary cases in Chiba Prefecture between January and August this year. Police are questioning the two suspects about their involvement in some of those cases.

Lots of people. Umm... any number of pawn shops will gladly take them off your hands... literally.

Why don't these thieves ever think of the end game?

Terrible to be robbed but I don’t understand why so many Japanese keep so much cash in their homes. Rings yeah. Normal to keep in a jewelry box. Any pawn shop in Japan will buy them from you but they totally rip you off. I had a gold and diamond ring that cost about $9,000. Japanese pawn shop offered 50,000 yen. A pawn shop in the Philippines offered $12,000 so I actually made a $3,000 profit.

Plenty of places, recently when I was leaving tone of the supermarkets in Tokyo I saw a big sign that offers to but rings, bags, gold items electronics literally everything.

It is a good sign to know that the situation is getting bad.

The article says both these guys had jobs, so blaming the current economic situation for their criminal behavior is weak, to say the least.

That said, I also don't understand why so many people keep large amounts of cash in their homes these days. It seems to be a carryover from the past here, when crime was not so prevalent and banks were less trusted.

how can I bring back more than $10000 in cash from the Philippines? My mother in law recently died and I don’t wear woman’s jewelry.

When inflation goes up so does crime, things will get no better
