Police in Tokyo said Tuesday have arrested a 61-year-old deliveryman on suspicion of stealing women’s underwear and said they had found more than 1,000 items of women’s lingerie and clothing at his home.
According to police, the suspect, Yasushi Kobayashi, who works for a printing company in Kawaguchi, Saitama Prefecture, has admitted to the charge and said he had been stealing women’s underwear and stockings for the past 20 years because he liked to wear them ever since he was young, Fuji TV reported.
Kobayashi was arrested for stealing nine items that had been hung out to dry at a costume rental shop in Higashi-nippori in Tokyo’s Arakawa Ward on April 17. When police searched his home, they found more than 1,000 items of women’s underwear and clothing
Police quoted Kobayashi as saying that while he was making deliveries in his truck, he would often steal lingerie that been hung out to dry on balconies or from washing machines in coin laundries.
Police said Kobayashi was identified by street surveillance camera footage which showed hin getting back into his truck after having stolen the items in April.
I feel like everyone in one time in their life has a little panty raid story. Nothing when you’re past the age of 13 but I’m pretty sure everyone has had a time where they snuck in to their friend’s sister room and taken their panties. Well this guy probably did that and that moment on his inner perverted criminal mind was hatched. I know it’s not like they figured out who Jack the Ripper was or caught the next Jeffery Dahmer, but the fact of the matter stands. They took down a criminal with 20 years of thieving experience. I get it, it’s not like they took him down in the act with a crazy sting operation involving him pocketing used women’s underwear. But still you know how weird the Japanese can get with sex fetish stuff so all things considered It’s kind of like they took down the Zodiac killer in the criminal world of used Women’s underwear. I mean if you think this guy is a casual perverted thief who occasionally gets offs wearing lace, you’re wrong. There’s no doubt in my mind this guy has made a shrine of his crimes and capers of all the thongs he’s stolen and has documented his feeling of wearing said used woman’s underwear. Guy must’ve been at the end of his ropes too. 61, old as shit, doesn’t know if he can make it any longer so he just snatches an unheard of NINE used panties hanging out to dry. Poor sick fuck know he was gonna get caught doing that probably. No sympathy from me, but a small part does wonder had he not been caught where the number would end up in the end. Probably enough underwear to restock a Goodwill store for years to come.
NYDN- A dispute over underwear between Derek Jeter and 50 Cent has turned the rapper into a Mets fan.
Jeter angered the Queens-born MC after backing out of a deal to promote a line of swanky skivvies because he feared 50 Cent would make the brand too “urban,” according to reports.
Jeter is being sued for nearly $5 million in Sweden for reneging on his promise to promote the undie brand Frigo, according to a lawsuit obtained by TMZ.com.
“Fifty was totally shocked to hear Jeter felt this way,” a source told the Daily News.
The then-Yankees captain signed a three-year deal in 2011 to be a director of the company and agreed to participate in major publicity events, the suit alleges.
But the baseball great allegedly got his knickers in a bunch in 2013, telling the owners he didn’t want his relationship with the company made public during its U.S. launch. When Frigo signed 50 Cent as a brand ambassador a year later, Jeter — who is biracial — tried to distance himself even more, fearing Fitty’s involvement would make the undies too “urban,” according to the suit.
The undergarments cost up to $100 per pair.
Fitty, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, took to Instagram last year to brag about his deal with the upstart company.
“I just did a deal for $78 million for underwear. What did you muthaf—as do today?” he wrote.
Frigo majority owner Mathias Ingvarsson claims Jeter’s actions have cost the company $30 million and he wants the shortstop to pony up $4.7 million in damages.
Representatives for Jeter did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Im siding with Jeter here 100%. Now its kinda been a joke how 50 cent always post #SMSaudio and #EffenVodka after every little thing on the planet. It could be “Thoughts and Prayers for Paris #EffenVodka #SMSaudio” which im pretty sure happened last week. Well the thing is those are 2 very clear companies. When i saw #Frigo at the end of things, I 100% legitimately thought it was to promote a rapper or something. Nothing about Mens Underwear. Nothing but a name that im pretty sure there are at least 10 Puerto Rican’s are using as a current nickname or alias. I don’t know how underwear would get “too urban”, but you cant blame Jeter for thinking that when it sounds like a one hit rapper associated with 50 cent. That’s not to mean that Jeter should back out of this though. It sounded too urban from the jump so i dont get whats stopping him now. Time to embrace your half black and get urban after retirement.
