Police in Musashino, Tokyo, have arrested a 40-year-old man on suspicion of violating a public nuisance ordinance after he sent more than 500 garbage items by mail to four people whom he claimed bullied him during his school years.
According to police, Shigeta Miura has admitted to the charge. Fuji TV reported that between August 2015 and October this year, Miura mailed at least 70 packages containing such items as rotten tea leaves, dirt, old women's underwear and others to four men who were in the Boy Scouts with him when they were at school.
Police said Miura would put the target's name and home or workplace address as the sender and choose random names and addresses to mail the items to. He then put the envelopes, without stamps, in mail boxes, knowing that the items would be returned to the senders -- his intended targets.
Miura has admitted to the charge and said it was revenge for when he was bullied by the other Boy Scouts.© Japan Today
