A 49-year-old high school teacher from a well-known competitive sports school in Kanagawa Prefecture has been arrested for drug possession, police announced Tuesday.
According to police, a small amount of illegal stimulants was found at the teacher’s home in Kanagawa Prefecture earlier in June, as part of an Osaka Prefectural Police national investigation into drug trafficking routes, Fuji TV reported.
The teacher, identified as Takatomo Imai, is employed at Tokai University Sagami Junior and Senior High School, one of the most prominent competitive sports secondary schools in the Kanto region.
Up to very recently, Imai was also the adviser for the school’s famed rugby team, which took part in the All Japan High School Rugby Championship a total of eight times in the past.
Imai was quoted by police as saying that he bought the drugs online and was planning on using it with a friend.© Japan Today
