Snack owner busted For hiring teenagers

Date Posted: 2004-11-12

Toshi Maeda’s biggest mistake was asking two men if they’d like to meet some young girls in his bar.

They said yes, went inside, then arrested the 27-year-old snack owner for hiring teenage girls ages 14-17, then requiring them to have sex with the customers. The men were cops. The arrest came at Maeda’s bar in the Nakano Machi bar street in Okinawa City’s Uechi District, near Gate 2 Street and Kadena Air Base.

Five girls were employed by the young entrepreneur, who was on the streets hustling business for his bar, and the girls. “Hey, come to my shop. I have beautiful girls. Don’t you want?”, he would ask.

This week he asked two undercover police officers to step inside and drink with the young girls. They took him up on it, and immediately recognized the girls as well underage. “We are police inspectors”, they declared, “and we are doing a clampdown. Sorry girls, we are not your customers.” When quizzed on how the girls wound up at Maeda’s place, they told police he’d recruited them and was paying them a lot. The girls told police they were just walking down the street when Maeda offered them the jobs.

“He said we have to take customers to the upstairs rooms and do prostitution, and we did,” the girls said. “Many in one day.”
