The Tokyo District Court on Tuesday approved prosecutors’ request to keep actress Erika Sawajiri detained for another 10 days. Sawajiri, 33, who was arrested on Nov 16 for allegedly possessing 0.09 of a gram of powder containing MDMA, will remain in detention until Dec 6.
Police said Sawajiri has also admitted to using illegal drugs, such as marijuana, LSD and cocaine, for more than 10 years.
Prosecutors said police are trying to identify the means through which she has been obtaining the drugs.
In a related development, a fashion designer acquaintance of Sawajiri -- a man in his 30s -- was arrested Tuesday for allegedly possessing the synthetic drug MDMA, Kyodo News reported.© Japan Today
