Police said Saturday that a 33-year-old woman has been arrested for breaking and entering into the home of former Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi in Yokosuka, Kanagawa Prefecture.
According to police, a member of Koizumi's family contacted the officer on duty at the front gate at 7:30 a.m., saying that a strange woman had entered the house. TBS reported that police found the woman sitting in a chair in the reception room.
The woman, who has been identified as Akiyo Kondo from Ashikaga, Tochigi Prefecture, was quoted by police as saying she wanted to meet Koizumi's son.
Koizumi was away from home at the time and no one in the house was injured, police said.
Police said the woman was at Koizumi's house once before last month and was turned away at the front gate.
There is a 24-hour guard on Koizumi's home but police did not say how the woman got in unobserved.© Japan Today
