Police are looking for a man who put a plastic bottle in a rubbish bin outside a police box near JR Chigasaki station on Thursday morning, after the bottle was found to contain two liquids which -- when combined -- produce hydrogen sulfide gas.
An officer noticed a foul smell coming from the bin when he returned to the police box at about 4.30 a.m. after patrolling the neighborhood. The bottle, which was upside down with the lid off, contained a light green liquid, and a puddle of brown liquid was found at the bottom of the bin. Analysis later confirmed the gas produced was hydrogen sulfide, which can be lethal if inhaled at higher concentrations.
Police said a security camera recorded footage of a man putting the bottle in the bin, and said that if caught, they may pursue a charge of attempted murder.© Wire reports
