Four men have been arrested for robbing a house in Machida, Tokyo, last year.

According to police, the four men are accused of breaking into the home of a 70-year-old woman in April of last year and tying her arms and legs with rope, before stealing 3.2 million yen in cash, Fuji TV reported.

Congratulations to the cops. Solid detective work, nice physical evidence. Doubtless MUCH harder work than the normal lazy, "Confess!" routine. I'd love to see more solid police work like this. ... .. . Sadly I can't help but harbor doubts about this case given the recent scandals about prosecutors faking evidence, and the slap on the wrist that the prosecutors received. It's sad that the justice system didn't administer a more harsh penalty and clear the lingering doubts.
