Tokyo man accused of stealing Facebook underwear photos
Japan Times -- Nov 11
A Tokyo man accused of accessing a woman's Facebook account and allegedly downloading pictures of her in her underwear has been arrested.

In what is being reported as Japan’s first such arrest, Ryosuke Koga, 25, allegedly logged into the victim’s Facebook account 17 times between January and March, a Metropolitan Police Department spokesman said.

The police quoted Koga as saying he committed the crime “to fulfill my sexual desire.”

Investigators also found that Koga, an employee of communications and office equipment distributor Hikari Tsushin Inc., allegedly had approximately 770 Facebook and iCloud IDs and passwords. Of these, they have identified users of 140 accounts, all but one of whom are women. They are trying to determine how he obtained the information.

「プライベート写真を見ることで欲求が満たされた」と話しているということです。 古賀亮介容疑者(25)は1月から3月にかけて、東京都内に住む女性のIDとパスワー­ドを使ってフェイスブックに不正にアクセスした疑いが持たれています。
