Just when we thought we saw the last of police officer stealing pantsu, a police sergeant was arrested Sunday on suspicion of stealing underwear from local residents in the city of Kakogawa, Hyogo Prefecture.
Sergeant Tsuyoshi Hatanaka, 48, was arrested on charges of theft after he swiped underwear and clothespins that were hanging at the home of a local woman. The woman’s husband saw a man stuff the items into a car and drive off, and called police to report the car’s license plate numbers. The car was spotted by officers about 1.5 kilometers from the scene and Hatanaka questioned.
When questioned about the theft, he took off and was chased by four patrol cars and apprehended 300 meters down the road. Hatanaka was off duty Sunday.
Its just funny to note that they need four police patrol cars to chase down a harmless pantsu thief. Maybe the police sergeant could have tried defending himself by saying he was collecting important evidence for another case he was working on XD
