  1. Why is the press is calling the poor suspect a, “35-year-old unemployed man”?

    Stealing more than 10 bicycle seats a day–200 women’s bicycle seats in 24 days–sounds like a full-time job to me.

  2. Finally, here’s a report in English…

    Man arrested for stealing 200 bicycle seats for their “scent of a woman”

    On 24 August, Kanagawa Prefectural Police picked up Joji Kondo for stealing three seats from women’s electric bicycles in a housing complex at around 4:00 in the morning. After searching Kondo’s home they uncovered a further 200 seats.
    According to police he admitted to the crimes saying “I wanted to smell the lingering scent of a woman.” MSN News Japan reported the 35-year-old as saying “I like the texture of the leather and the smell it has, I would lick it and sniff it.”
