Bosozoku group leader arrested for damaging Chiba massage parlor with fire extinguishers

Jin-Shan Lei

TOKYO (TR) – The Tokyo Metropolitan Police on Friday arrested the leader of the bosozoku biker gang Dragon (怒羅権) for damaging a massage parlor in Chiba Prefecture in March, reports the Sankei Shimbun (Sep. 21).

Jin-Shan Lei, 39, who is already under prosecution for violating stimulants control laws, and six others were taken into custody for spraying the contents of three fire extinguishers inside a massage parlor in Funabashi City at approximately 2:20 a.m. on March 12 of this year.

According to police authorities, six of the suspects were requested by the manager of a rival massage parlor, Suiichi Kanzaki, 29, to carry out the attack. Kanzaki was also arrested. All seven suspects have admitted to the allegations.

The owner of the damaged club was forced to cease operations for two weeks due to the damage.

Dragon, based in Tokyo, is an affiliate of the Kanto Rengo (関東連合) bosozoku group. Dragon’s core membership is comprised of second- and third-generation returnees from China who came to Japan after the end of World War II.

News reports from last week linked both Kanto Rengo and Dragon to the beating death of a restaurant manager in Roppongi earlier this month.
