Japanese man finds woman living in his closet
A Japanese man puzzled by food mysteriously disappearing from his refrigerator got a shock when he found out a woman had been living in his home for months without permission, police said yesterday.
The 57-year-old man living alone - or so he thought - in the western city of Fukuoka installed a security camera and called the police when he saw images of someone walking around his home while he was out. "We searched the house in the man's presence. We found the woman in the closet," said a local police spokesman.
The woman, named as 58-year-old Tatsuko Horikawa, was found in a storage space only just big enough for a person to squeeze into lying down.
Dolly tracks lead to stolen machine
Memo to crooks: If you’re going to steal a Pepsi machine, your front yard probably isn’t the best place to stow it, especially if dolly tracks lead right back to where the machine was in the first place.
On Thursday at around 2:50 a.m., St. Francis County deputies were on patrol in Hughes, when they spotted two men standing beside a Pepsi machine in a yard. As the deputies approached, the two men took off running.
The deputies followed them in the car for a while, and then one deputy left the car and ran one of the men down on foot.
At first, the man told the deputy that his name was Ollie Rodgers, but it was later found that the man’s name is Glenn Haskins, 37, of Hughes. The second suspect has not yet been caught.
The Pepsi machine was found to have been stolen from Poor Boy’s Liquor store. There was also some damage to the front of the machine.
