A woman has been arrested in connection with a bomb threat that was sent to Toyama City Hall, police revealed Saturday.
The woman, who has been named as 69-year-old Toshiko Hirai from Tateyama, was arrested for sending a hand-written bomb threat to Toyama City Hall on Friday morning, TV Asahi reported. In the letter, Hirai allegedly threatened to plant a bomb on the building's second floor that would explode on Friday at 2 p.m. About 70 police and civil servants searched the premises and found nothing unusual.
Police say that aside from the bomb threat, the letter also included details about Hirai's family. She wrote that she had consulted the city hall over the hospitalization of a relative, but had not received the help she was seeking, TV Asahi reported.
Following her arrest, she was quoted by police as saying, "I was angry with them, so I sent the letter."© Japan Today
