A 22-year-old male factory worker has been arrested for stealing pantsu from an elementary school’s pool locker room, in Shiga prefecture.
The culprit was also implicated in a similar crime committed in Nagahama City, also located in Shiga Prefecture.
Upon further investigation, it was discovered he had also stolen 29 pairs of pantsu, as well as shirts, from yet another pool locker room on June 26th of last year. Prior to that he had been arrested in January for stealing underwear from an area resident’s clothes line.
Roughly 300 pairs of pantsu were found in his home, and thus it is thought probable he had been stealing from numerous homes and schools.
