Police in Kawaguchi, Saitama Prefecture, have arrested a 67-year-old man on suspicion of fraudulent obstruction of business by making nuisance calls to the prefectural police headquarters.
Police said, Yoshio Shimada, who was arrested on Monday, has admitted to the allegation, Kyodo News reported. Police said Shimada used his cell phone to make 2,060 nuisance calls to Saitama prefectural police headquarters from 11:15 a.m. on Sept 30 to 8:30 a.m. on Oct 8.
He verbally abused officers with comments such as “you are taxpayer thieves,” “you’re fired,” and “you’re big old idiots.” The total time spent on the phone calls is said to have exceeded 27 hours.
