The Knucklehead of the Day award

Today’s winner is Akira Hino. He gets the award for the following

TOKYO (AFP) — Tokyo police said Tuesday they had arrested a man with a passion for women’s underwear who used a fishing rod to reel them in.

Akira Hino, 51, was arrested last week for stealing a pair of knickers from a laundry pole on a second-floor balcony, a police spokesman said.

He stretched out a three-metre (10-foot) rod and caught the underwear on a hook, the Mainichi Shimbun reported.

Called to his house, police found more than 500 pairs of women’s underwear inside. He reportedly told investigators he had got into the habit of stealing undergarments when he was 18.

The article went on to say it wasn’t known how long Hino had been using a fishing pole for the thefts.

This award definitely falls under catch of the day, the Tokyo police for catching a pervert, and Akira Hino who cathces today’s Knucklehead of the Day.
