Three men broke into the house of a jewelry business owner in Hadano City, Kanagawa Prefecture, early Monday and stole jewelry worth more than 15 million yen, as well as 300,000 yen in cash.
According to police investigations, the three broke into the house of Tamiko Yamauchi, 68, and her daughter Yukiko, 45, around 1:30 a.m. The women told police they were roused out of bed, then bound and gagged with stockings. The two untied themselves about 45 minutes later and called police.
Police said the Yamauchis run their jewelry business from their home.© Japan Today
