28 Comments

A 51-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly using a fishing rod to steal women's underwear. Police said Tuesday that Akira Hino was arrested last week for stealing a pair of panties from a clothesline on a second-floor balcony.

Police said he used a 3-meter rod and caught the underwear on a hook. He was spotted by a resident who called police. Officers found more than 500 pairs of women's underwear inside his apartment. He reportedly told investigators he had got into the habit of stealing undergarments when he was 18.

elcot...you are so right I almost forgot about him. I think a fishing pole is the only thing he DIDN'T use during the series.

Looks like the J-Cops got him with his pants down. Turned in by a peeping neighbor. Man...I would stay clear of that area...

I don't get the underwear thing at all either. Maybe it's a combination of kleptomania and rape? Oh well, enough pop psychology for today.

I do know one friend who was cleaning out her father's place after he died and found all these pairs of panties (why are panties pairs, BTW?) along with notes from all the girls he met on the internet and had sent money to. Freaked her out, that's for sure!

But I still don't get it.

All he had to do was ask. She might have given him a pair or two. Also this elimanates the chance of getting any panties over size medium.

I think it is the fault of that "devious" manga Dragonball where a pig whishes for some girls panties and alwys wears it on his head.

He catched Fuku no Fugu ;p

So when he said I caught one this big, he meant granny panties?

What gives with the Japanese male fetish for Ladies Underwear?

They cannot get the cookie so they settle for stealing crumbs. It beats having them try to steal the cookie by a large margin though. --Cirroc

You better believe to this story. People like this one are all over the world. It is just mental illness and this man needed help since he was 18. If he is not ill than he must be another collector and that is his satisfaction.

Am gonna guess he was unemployed... possibly from Saitama too!

Sheesh! Another one! What gives with the Japanese male fetish for Ladies Underwear? Just another day int eh life of a another sicko pervert salariman. I wonder do some of them compare notes, like "How many pairs of knickers do you have in your collection, Taro san? - Ive got 500!"

I wanna see him posing with his biggest catch of the year!

What is the offense he committed? Fishing without a license perhaps? By the way, I wonder if he practiced "catch and release"? Anything over a size medium gets tossed.

No doubt that this guy's a fan of bASS MASTERS, too. Also when living in a concrete jungle, what's a man to do? It's not like you can hop in the pick-up and head down to the creek for a quickie.

Now, before you brand him a pervert, think it over. There's a possibility that he's almost blind and his olfactory nerve is ultra-sensitive. Maybe he thought he was catching fish.

Did they check his freezer for frozen panties? Or find any panty tempura?

Officers found more than 500 pairs of women’s underwear inside-

I wonder what he uses for bait on his fishing hook?
