Asahi Shimbun reports today that Mie Prefectural Police officially admitted that a police sergeant in his 50s, who worked out of a station in the prefecture, was caught for changing price tags on a used Kamen Rider figure and trying to purchase it for the lower price in a recycle shop on November 16, 2013. According to the police, the sergeant took the original 1,980 yen (about US$19.34) price tag off the figure and put a 400 yen (US$3.91) tag, which was taken from another item in the shop, on it. His act was, however, watched by a shop clerk and he had no choice but to admit it when accused.

The police punished him with a 10% salary reduction for six months, and he has already resigned voluntary. He threw away his career
