Recycling plant worker busted

A 26-year-old man working at a car recycling plant in Urasoe City has been arrested by Ginowan Police for violating the stimulants Control Law.

Police are investigating where Hayato Tanahara picked up the stimulants. Ginowan Police believe Tanahara used stimulants between late July and August. The cops’ suspicion arose when officers conducted an investigation on another crime Tanahara was a suspect. Once a warrant was obtained for Tanahara’s arrest, and he was ordered to submit to a urine test, he was found to test positive.

He was originally arrested August 8th on charges he forced his ex-girlfriend into his car holding her against her will for an hour and a half. He had abducted her from a parking lot at a pachinko hall in Maehara, Ginowan City, and later let her go on a supermarket parking lot.
