A man was arrested on a charge of theft after allegedly stealing clothes from women and sending them pictures of the items in his possession, police in Japan said.

Tokyo police said that they have arrested 48-year-old Shochi Nagata, after being accused of stealing shoes and underwear from women.

Police said that the suspect was caught after he sent photos of stolen underwear to a 30-year-old woman. On the photos, the suspect wrote: “Here is your treasure.”

During a raid on the suspect’s home, police found lots of shoes and underwear belonging to different women.
