A couple in Gifu Prefecture has been fined by the management company in charge of a service area after they were caught disposing of cans in the restrooms.
The couple, who have been named as 63-year-old Takeshi Horisumi and 62-year-old Hideko Horisumi, were charged with trespassing when it was discovered they had entered the service area restrooms for the purpose of disposing of cans, TBS reported. The couple were also fined 300,000 yen.
A police bomb disposal team was also dispatched to examine the cans, as they were considered suspicious items.
