Police in Saga City, Saga Prefecture, have arrested a 30-year-old man on suspicion of stealing teenage girls’ clothing, including underwear and swimsuits.
According to police, Takahiro Kubo, an electrician, attempted to steal a swimsuit which was drying on a clothesline outside a house at around 10 a.m. on March 10, Fuji TV reported. Police said a resident inside the home spotted Kubo and used his smartphone to film him but Kubo left without taking the swimsuit.
Police identified Kubo, who lives in Ogi City in the prefecture, through the smartphone camera footage and arrested him on April 6 after they found 424 items of teenage girls’ underwear and swimsuits at Kubo’s house.
Police said Kubo has admitted to stealing the items.© Japan Today
