A police officer who was arrested for stealing underwear belonging to a female police officer at a police academy in Togane City, Chiba Prefecture, resigned on Wednesday. His supervisor was also disciplined, according to police officials.
Ryosuke Takazato, 33, who was an instructor at the academy, was arrested on Aug 8 for allegedly stealing the underwear of a 24-year-old female cadet after sneaking into a dormitory with a key he had stolen from the office on July 29.
Takazato was initially suspended for six months but decided to quit on Wednesday. Prosecutors have decided not to press charges.© Japan Today
