Man steals 450 pairs of high heels

TOKYO - A 28-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of stealing high-heeled shoes from bar hostesses at an exclusive nightclub in the Japanese capital, local media reported Wednesday.

Sho Sato allegedly entered a dressing room at the swanky bar in Tokyo in November and stole 14 pairs of high heels and cosmetic items worth 550,000 yen (176,000 baht), the Jiji Press reported, citing police.

Mr Sato described its lockers as a “treasure box,” the report said.

The police seized a total of 450 pairs of high heels Sato had allegedly stolen.

"I felt the joy of stealing high heels. I’m not interested in brand-new ones,” he was quoted by Jiji as saying.
