Cop busted for trying to sneak into colleague's house to spy on wife

35 Comments

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.

At least they are clearly out of their league if the category was violence.

What would have happened if the key did not break?

What exactly was this kook planning to do anyway? Hide in the closet and film the woman? I wonder how he got his colleague's key in the first place. Most guys carry their keys in their pocket. Maybe he pinched it from a locker.

What a weak character, I agree with timeon, he wasn't suspected but confessed anyway, how weak willed are J police! Any sign of trouble they cave in.

Stranger than fiction? Isn't wonderful that the local police have such high recruiting standards. It is the sort of thing that allows you to sleep safe in your beds at night.

What an absolute tosser (and we can probably assume that such activity was the purpose of his break-in). Where do these people come from? Where do they dig them up?

he liked his colleague’s wife

What? he's only 32. There're many more single women around, and Niigata women are as pretty as the Akita bijin. A couple of my colleagues are from Niigata and they are very good looking.

Is it routine for the Japanese police force to question their own or was it a damn good investigation?

Local fuzz certainly are impressive. Stalkers, can't get proper copy key cut, confess at first sign of trouble.

But if they are on the right side of the law they can be really awful.

Yeah, guys who take a fancy to one woman for specific reasons other than appearance are sick.

Maybe he was after her panties.

Try that at my house.....I garantee that"doshiyo kana?" will not cross my mind. He would be in a body cast for a year.

Why would they start questioning officers? What made them think it was one of their own? Why were the other officers suspects to begin with?

As usual, much info is missing.

I'd like to know what his plan was after he sneaked into the house. It's not as if he would have been a fly on the wall. She would have noticed him there. What was his plan then???

The guy is a looser, if you are so eager to have somebody, why choose this weakling way of getting it. Chicken!

likeitis-ask a few of the victims of the every-other-day knifings in Japan how Japanese fare on the violence front. they are holding their own and then some

Yelena-what did he un-loose?

Only in Japan

Two reasons this story is unintentionally amusing:

1) the first people the investigators thought to question were apparently fellow police officers

2) even with a key, the idiot police lieutenant couldn't manage to get inside the house

very creepy!!!!!!!

Apparently he's from what was formerly Niitsu City. They're a bit strange over there (and it's impossible to find a decent place to eat there on a Sunday, too!)

"quoted by police as saying he liked his colleague’s wife and wanted to see her in her home environment."

Did he mean "natural habitat?" What a creepy character. Scareeey, when you start to think about it. How could he have gone to abuse his position in some other more serious way if he hadn't been caught out?

Don't worry folks, the people in charge of domestic security are professionals...

Ha. Ha. Ha.

I'd like to see what the colleague's wife looks like. Pics JT?

Police Lt., so all that will happen is he will have to pay to change the lock on the door, since the only thing that actually happened was he damaged the lock. Expect this story to disappear after a suspended sentence. Just don't go trying to break into peoples' apartments any time soon.

He could have just said, that he is a delivery man and needs to confirm an address of a neighbor.

These people are so impulsive and warped that it would seem they will try anything. What is up with this? What next, hidden cameras in the women's showers? Creepy might be a little to subtle a term.

He was lucy that he wasn't shot. Makes the pro argument for handguns.

...just how hot was she? If I were a J-cop I would also check to see if he had other keys for other girls that he admires! I really doubt this was the first one...

CREEPY!

If he did this to me he would be six feet under. This ex-cop is an absolute idiot, and now he is in unemployment club. He had a good secure job for the rest of his life and a female twist in his head mixed his marbles to use his 'gun' on friend’s wife. He must be using cheap materials to make his own key. What a bloody idiot he is. Is this wife of his colleague a princess? I wouldn't mind to her. Bad luck 'ROMEO,' try again.

Do J-cops actually solve any crimes or they too busy give out parking tickets. Going to work one day saw J-cop washing his squad car ouside the koban. They really need to recruit some muscle and gaijin cops at moment J-cops just look a joke.
