Tokyo -

A 28-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of stealing high-heeled shoes from bar hostesses at an exclusive nightclub in Tokyo, local media reported on Wednesday.

Sho Sato allegedly entered a dressing room at the swanky bar in Tokyo in November and stole 14 pairs of high heels and cosmetic items worth 550 000 yen (about $5 500), the Jiji Press reported, citing police.

Sato described the bar’s lockers as a “treasure box”, the report said.

The police seized a total of 450 pairs of high heels that Sato had allegedly stolen.

“I felt the joy of stealing high heels. I'm not interested in brand-new ones,” he was quoted as saying. - Sapa-dpa
