Police on Friday afternoon arrested a 79-year-old man for blocking the road outside his home with his garbage in Gyoda City, Saitama Prefecture.
According to police, the man, who has not been named, has repeatedly piled up garbage in front of his house since 1995. Recently, the mountain of garbage grew with old bicycles and furniture added to the pile. Police said that neighbors had complained about the man many times and the city council had also requested him to dispose of his garbage.
The man told police it wasn't garbage and that he was still using a lot of the items.
The law imposes less up to three months in jail or a maximum 50,000 yen fine for blocking a public road.© Japan Today
