American English teacher busted for smuggling pot

Date Posted: 2012-01-27

A 32-year-old American English teacher who tried to smuggle cannabis into Japan has been arrested after being discovered.

The elementary school teacher living in Onna Village has confessed to having the drug shipped to Okinawa, telling customs officials “it was intended for my personal use.” The Naha District Public Prosecutor’s Office has charged him with violating the Customs Law. Customs officials say the man concealed the cannabis in an international delivery parcel sent from Nevada on December 8th last year.

He tried to smuggle it into Japan by having his father send the packet. On the same day, a staff member of the Osaka Customs discovered the cannabis when inspecting bonded goods.
