Police in Fussa, Tokyo, said Monday they have arrested a 39-year-old man for destruction of property after he confessed to pouring ink, ketchup and sauces into Japan Post mailboxes.
Police said the suspect, identified as Satoshi Ayukawa, a hospital employee, told them he poured the liquids into at least 13 mailboxes because it helped him forget his stress at work, NTV reported. Police said Ayukawa has admitted pouring liquid into the mailboxes on at least 30 occasions since April.
Police said Ayukawa was identified through street surveillance camera footage.
Japan Post said 845 letters and postcards were affected by the liquids, but said they were still able to deliver them all.© Japan Today
