Stealing is a crime. It's wrong. But, if you plan on breaking into a car and stealing someone's PlayStation Portable, be sure that you don't accidentally sell it back to its owner like Masashi Osawa did. You'll end up so arrested.
Earlier this month, 25-year-old Masahi Osawa spotted a PSP and a couple of CDs in a small car parked in an electronics store parking lot in Kagoshima Prefecture. The Yomiuri Newspaper reports that Osawa used some sort of tool to jimmy open the car, and apparently took a PlayStation Portable and several CDs all worth ¥13,900 or about $175.
Osawa then took those items into the electronics store with the intention of reselling them for cash. The 28-year-old part time store clerk thought the items might be his and went to his car to check when he discovered his car had been broken into, while another staffer called the cops, leading to Osawa's arrest.
