A man arrested for stealing dozens of pairs of women's boots has told investigators that he smelled them to imagine what the women who wore them looked like, police said.

Kazuhiro Watanabe, 33, from Okagaki, Fukuoka Prefecture, admitted to the allegations of theft during questioning. "I got excited when I smelled them and fantasized over what the women who wore them looked like," Watanabe was quoted as telling investigators.

In the specific case for which he was arrested, Watanabe stole a pair of boots belonging to a 42-year-old woman, worth 5,000 yen, from a sports club in Yahatahigashi-ku, Kitakyushu, on Feb. 22, local police said.

Investigators confiscated 27 pairs of women's boots from his home and car. Local police said they suspect that he stole the boots from hospitals and sports clubs while on his way home from work over the past few years. (mdn)
