A woman has been arrested in Sakai, Osaka, for harassment of the metropolitan police department after having called 110, the emergency number, 15,000 times in the last half year alone.
Police said that Tomomi Monmae, 44, an unemployed resident of Sakai, faces charges for fraudulent disturbance of official police business, TBS reported Thursday.
According to police, since May of this year, Monmae has dialed 110 for the Osaka police over 15,000 times, often times dialing over 900 times a day, using her cell phone. Police said that Monmae called countless times, and before even listening to the person on the end of the line, would quickly hang up the phone.
Police said they visited her on at least 60 occasions to warn her but she would talk to them only through the building intercom, usually saying she was tired and had to go to bed, TBS quoted officers as saying.
Police said that in most of the calls, Monmae would request that they arrest neighbors or acquaintances but was vague about why.© Japan Today
