An unemployed 48-year-old man who was staying at a hotel in Takasaki City, Gunma Prefecture, has been arrested for stealing items from his guest room, which included a mini-refrigerator, microwave oven and other appliances.
According to police, Isao Takahashi, who is a resident of Shibukawa, Gunma Prefecture, stole four items from the hotel room he was staying in on Tuesday, Sankei Shimbun reported. The stolen objects include a mini-refrigerator, microwave oven and table clock.
A hotel employee, who had gone to clean the room after Takahashi checked out, noticed that the fridge and other appliances were missing. The hotel notified the police.
Takahashi was quoted by police as saying, “I couldn’t make ends meet and my fridge at home was broken so I planned to use the hotel one for myself.”© Japan Today
