A firefighter working at the Ebara branch of the Tokyo Fire Department was arrested for trespassing into a woman’s apartment in Suginami Ward, and stealing two pairs of her underwear, police said Tuesday.

According to police, the 27-year-old vice-captain entered the woman’s apartment around 4 a.m. on Sunday. She was asleep with a male friend at the time, but he awoke to the noise and was able to catch the fireman and hold him until police arrived. They arrested him with two pairs of the woman’s underwear in his possession.

The fireman told police he entered her apartment by mistake, confusing it with his friend’s apartment. The front door was unlocked, according to police. The fireman also said that he was intoxicated.

Stupid guy, why did he let his peverted side get the better of him? Or maybe the fireman was intoxicated by the smoke, causing him not being able to think and act properly. What do you think?
