Last week, I posted an entry about this guy who stole women’s boots from health club lockers and this week an old guy steals from the police.

A man, apparently drunk, walks into a koban – a police box (a smaller form of police stations where 3 or 4 officers police several streets) in the middle of the night, sees a tax campaign poster of an actress (pictured left) and proceeds to smash the glass to steal it.

The police found that the officer in the koban was sleeping in the back, and that the man was mad.
