A man has been arrested for stealing Taiga.
The 32-year-old truck driver was arrested for breaking into the residences of several students, leading police to recover a substantial haul, including the dakimakura pictured above.
However, far from being a crime of passion for Taiga, it seems the thief was merely a common kleptomaniac: “I have a habit of stealing stuff – since December I’ve burgled about a hundred places.”
Police are investigating him in connection with 61 reported cases of theft, totalling some $35,000.
It seems likely Taiga (visible in detail here) will be returned home, if her owner is man enough to claim her.
