Yōichi Yonehata, a 23-year-old unemployed man, was charged in Tokyo's Edogawa Ward on November 14 for stealing 101 volumes of manga. The suspect reportedly said, "I'm in deep debt, so I was going to resell the books back to used bookstores." He is suspected of stealing Detective Conan, Hana Yori Dango, and other manga worth about 60,000 yen (US$500) from the Tsutaya's main Edogawa store on November 3 between 4:20 and 4:40 p.m. He allegedly took about 50 volumes out of the store in a plastic bag, hid them in a parking lot, and then went back to get more. He was caught when a nearby bicycle store's employee spotted him. Source: Jiji Press, Asahi Shimbun
