Arrest follows refusal to pay for Awamori

Date Posted: 2012-07-07

A 47-year-old newspaper deliveryman is under arrest on fraud charges after consuming a bottle of awamori and then refusing to pay for it.

Kenei Kinjo, a deliveryman for the Okinawa Times newspaper’s Sonoda branch office, consumed a ¥8,000 bottle of awamori at a restaurant in Okinawa City’s Uechi district between 12:30 a.m. and 3 a.m. one day last week, and then failed to pay. Kinjo told Okinawa Police he had no money.

The Okinawa Times Company says “it’s a serious, regrettable matter. We will check all the facts, and then remind managers and management at our branches of proper employee behavior.”
