A man was arrested on charges of illegal dumping after being caught dumping a large amount of pornography at a children’s park, police in Japan said.
However, after telling police that the stash belonged to his sick friend, police decided to drop the charges.
Osaka Police said that the incident began when 70-year-old Hideaki Adachi, was seen arriving at the children’s park and unloading 17 bags of adult movies and magazines including about 500 video tapes from the back of a truck.
People at the children’s called police. Police officers who arrived at the scene, arrested Adachi, on suspicion of dumping 500 pounds of pornography.
He was released the next day after telling police that he had found the treasure in a warehouse belonging to his sick friend and he wanted to save him the trouble.
Adachi, who worked as a volunteer at the park to help the homeless, was hoping that the huge collection of adult material would be collected and taken to a proper disposal site.
