Sweet Thief Caught Sticky-Handed


A slippery thief known for terrorizing Tokyo and Ishikawa Prefecture with his sweetie stealing has finally been apprehended, once again demonstrating how swiftly Japan’s finest can respond to the most heinous of crimes.

The unemployed 51-year-old (supposedly nicknamed “Sugar” by investigators) has been accused of pilfering and devouring over 250 desserts (ice cream, chocolate and pudding, among other treats) over 40 different incidents as far back as 2013, with his lack of gainful employ likely serving as the motive – along with a taste for all things sweet and sugary.

Surveillance cameras managed to pin down the culprit and will likely be used as evidence for his sinister stealing, though his sloppy work in making away with the goods – leaving a mess of crumbs behind at the scene for police to extract DNA from – may have also proven to be his downfall.

Additionally suspected to have stolen a pair of sandals, the sentence for the relentlessly hungry man has yet to be declared.

    if stealing desserts is sinister and heinous what would rape be considered as? very miniscule?

    He's not a refugee, so nobody would ever accuse him of rape.

    It's kinda ridiculous that Muslims can get away with that shit. But the tides are turning, this PC bullshit is being washed away in Europe.

    I find it odd they went through to trouble and cost of doing a DNA analyses on such a small crime?
    Or maybe they just said they did.
    I'm not sure which is more petty the crime committed or the police wasting money on forensic analyses on a trifle.
    Esp when they once considered what was clearly a ritualistic assassination by crime syndicate a suicide.

    I guess the Japanese police only pursue the easy and safe cases which is how they get their high conviction rate.

    arresting for petty crime is about sending a message that it is not ok and not about the costs of the items.
    would it be ok if I break into your home and steal your bread? I mean, it's just $2 bread, why call the cops?

    good question. given super-low rape rate in Japan, I'd say it will be considered like "oh no. not those american navy, raping people again >_<" :/

    Rape is like saying "Hello".

    The suspect was reportedly wearing black t-shirts under a white kimono, black boots, was of average height and had silvery-curly hair.

    Sounds like to me the police of Isikawa have absolutely nothing to do so maybe the city officials can cut back their funding,maybe even lay off a few and sell off the equipment in forensics lab to communities who have a real crime problem.
    Then maybe take the money saved and spend more on programs to help the poor I'm just sayian.

    240 small items over four years is practically nothing as far as shrinkage rates go.
    And you can't even be sure the same person did them all or if the people running the store decided accidental waste or employee theft as theft from an outside party.
    Some people in Japan may act nice on the outside but inside they're worse scum than anything you may meet on the streets of NYC or Harlem.
    Such as the f---tard who called to police over someone charging her phone.

    Stupid shitty Samsung spell check I meant responsible.
    Besides if it was the same guy coming and stealing for the past four years why didn't they just confront him and tell him he's not welcome there vs waiting so long.

    Wow you're an idiot.
    The poster never said it was ok to steal and instead he/she was stating over the given time frame the number of lost items was well within normal losses for a business and the same person probably is not reproducible for them all.

    Oh and holy fuck on the link to the story about the waste of carbon atoms who called the police on a girl for charging her phone from a public outlet.

    Really the cops should have tased him for wasting their time and in this case I'd support a little police brutality.
    I'd like to meet that asshole in person so I can tell him what a piece of work he is and punch him in the face.

    They were probably worried he might move onto bigger items to steal. Some thieves do become emboldened if they're not getting caught by the authorities when they do that stuff.

    It makes remeber that anon from 4chan that played games in order to escape the reality of his shitty place were someone always entered his house, not to steal but to eat the strawberry part of his icecreams.

    Yes. In all the major supermarkets in the UK they place those alarm sticker things that need to be deactivated at the checkouts on high value items, or things that thieves typically target.

    If a cashier forgets to deactivate the sticker thing, the alarm is triggered and that person has their bag checked or has to provide proof of purchase via receipt.

    That's not really bad and worthy of police resources imho. I mean, yes, he stole and committed a crime but c'mon, it was just candy and a pair of shoes. And his circumstances forced him. I know this isn't an excuse (and it should not be one) but I'd have just ignore it. There are more important things police should focus on.

    That's a really nice stance... and a damn easy one to take when you're not the one he's been stealing from. Those desserts didn't spring from the ground for free -- the store owners had to pay for them.

    You can ignore someone stealing from you if you like, but if it gets to be commonly known that you don't care if someone steals from you, don't be surprised to wake up and find everything you own gone.

    Actually the food ultimately did spring from the ground all food does either directly or as feed for animals.

    Looking at what was stolen it seems like the guy was just homeless.
    The DNA test they used probably cost more than the items that were stolen.
    Looking at how things are so slow in this town that catching a homeless person is something worthy of news and is such a big excitement the investigators gave the suspect a nickname. I think they can afford to cut back on the funding for their police force and spend more on helping the poor.

    Are you sure he was homeless? I understand the sentiment behind your post. But did you look at the website video? The man in question looks cleanly shaven, certainly not someone who has been living rough.

    He may be someone who gets a thrill breaking into premises. Like some kind of perverse pleasure.
