Senior citizen steals 159 bicycle seats, arrested
61-year-old man steals 159 bicycle seats after someone stole his; gets arrested
A senior citizen from Tokyo was arrested last week by the Japanese police for allegedly stealing no less than 159 bicycle seats, as revenge for having his own seat stolen last year. Akio Hatori, 61, was apprehended for the alleged theft of a bicycle seat.
Surveillance camera footage showed him removing the seat of someone's bike, placing it in the basket of his own bicycle and pedalling away. Following investigations, officers identified Hatori and raided his house, only to find a stash of 159 seats.
"I had to buy another bicycle seat after mine was stolen in the summer of 2018," Hatori told the cops. "After that I started stealing out of revenge. I wanted others to know the feeling." The accused is yet to be tried.
