Women's sock thief busted in Nara

20 Comments

Police on Monday recovered nearly 300 pairs of women's socks from the home of a man who was arrested late last week for theft in Gojo City, Nara.

Shipping company employee Kazuki Kanemaru, 49, was arrested on Jan 21 after being caught trying to steal socks from the home of a local woman. According to police, on Jan 18 and 19, they received calls from women who had several pairs of socks stolen. Kanemaru was caught dressed in his work uniform, gazing at laundry hanging on the first floor of an apartment building.

The suspect testified that "There was nothing that caught my attention [at the home where he was arrested], so I didn't take anything," but said he had stolen women's socks from tens of other residences.

Something needs to be done so that these guys experience real women younger in life so that they do not become fixated on garments as an unnatural substitute for the real thing.

Wearing stolen womens socks is only slightly less maladjusted than undergarments

I love pretty feet, so I should thank this guy for allowing more women to go sockless. Thank you Kazuki. You are my hero.

True motive was found to be his burning desire to start his own sock puppet show.

Awesome work. I wonder how many of the socks were over the knee.

If he was sick enough to steal them, what exactly was he doing with them? Somehow, I don't think wearing them was on his mind.

U… I am afraid, weird guys in Japan are stealing underwear, socks. Better do not wear any underwear, socks etc, what you don’t have, can not be stolen

Socks? OK, that's as strange as underwear. Does he have a foot fetish or something?

I gotta admit there is always something strange going on somewhere in the world. Whoda thunk?

Well, it's different, at least, from the policeman who had hundreds of pairs of panties. Oya-jees of Japan, Get A Life!
