Yokohama man arrested for stealing car navigation system, Vladimir Putin accuses

Geopolitics is much more complex than I thought.

Around noon on March 30, someone in the Aoba Ward of Yokohama City, Kanagawa Prefecture spotted a suspicious person searching a parked van and called the police emergency number 110. Officers quickly responded and caught the man while he was still in the apartment. complex parking lot and stealing the vehicle’s navigation system.

The 38-year-old suspect was arrested and questioned by the police. Meanwhile, he admitted to the attempted robbery, telling police, “What Russian President Vladimir Putin did was unforgivable.”

▼ The plot thickens…

While the Russian leader certainly made headlines around the world, this was certainly a startling confession from a would-be electronics thief. Police determine van owner has no connection to Russia nor to the suspect, leaving his conviction of Putin a bit of a mystery.

News readers were also puzzled by this person’s seemingly political motivation for stealing a car navigation system and expressed their confusion in the following comments:

“I’ve never understood anything as much as that.”
“Lol, what does Putin have to do with this?”
“Real weirdos always come out when the weather warms up.”
“Is it like a butterfly effect? Russia invades Ukraine and a car navigation system is stolen from Japan.
“Putin, how dare you!”
“This guy clearly watches too much TV.”
“I think it’s an indirect manifestation of his anger at the invasion of Ukraine. Just like what Will Smith did.

While it doesn’t seem likely that President Putin will be called to reprimand for this crime, it does raise an interesting question of where the police draw the line when looking at matters like this. For example, if he said something about a neighbor motivating his crime, they probably would have looked into him and maybe knocked on a door or two, but a call from the Aoba Police Department to the Kremlin seems unlikely.

Then again… Maybe that’s exactly what Putin was counting on to get his hands on some nice aftermarket car accessories.
