Police on Wednesday sent papers on a 32-year-old police lieutenant to prosecutors for attempting to sneak into a colleague's house with a spare key he made by himself in Niigata. The officer, who voluntarily quit the police force the same day, was quoted by police as saying he liked his colleague's wife and wanted to see her in her home environment.
According to police, on Jan 8, the lieutenant, who has not been named, allegedly attempted to sneak into his colleague's house with a duplicate key he had made after stealing the original. Police said the suspect failed to get into the house because the spare key broke when he inserted it into the lock.
After the colleague reported the attempted break-in to police, station staff started questioning officers and the lieutenant confessed his involvement.© Japan Today
