An incorrigible underwear thief has been arrested in Japan for stealing a staggering 730 bras and panties from numerous laundromats.
Tetsuo Urata, 56, was arrested last week immediately after police located the large stash of woman underwear in his condominium in the southern Japanese metropolis of Beppu, in accordance to regional outlet Abema Television.
The extent of his underwear obsession was laid bare when law enforcement released an graphic demonstrating the entirety of the 730-piece purloined panty and bra selection in the condominium.
Cops were initially alerted to the troubling circumstance when a 21-12 months-previous university student spied Urata allegedly thieving 6 pairs of her underwear at a laundromat on Aug. 24.
Officers identified the rest of Urata’s stolen haul when they tracked him down a 7 days later on at his condominium.
Urata allegedly admitted to pilfering the underwear, the report mentioned.
“We haven’t confiscated these a substantial selection of panties in years,” a law enforcement spokesman instructed Abema Tv.
Police in the close by town of Oita arrested 40-calendar year-aged Toru Adachi in 2019 for thieving 1,100 pairs of underwear, in accordance to the Tokyo Reporter.
It is unclear how quite a few laundromats Urata qualified and more than what time body the products ended up stolen.
Police say they’ve seized the 730 underwear goods as proof.
