OSAKA (TR) – A misdirected catalog lead to the bust of an uncensored porn DVD operation in Osaka, prefectural Police announced on Friday.

Sankei Sports (Sept. 21) reports that on Wednesday officers raided Flower in Naniwa Ward and confiscated 280,000 non-censored discs and 7,000 erectile dysfunction pills.

The manager of the operation, Juji Hidaka, 27, and five other suspects were arrested on charges of possessing obscene material with the intent to sell. By law, films available in Japan are required to have genitalia properly censored.

All of the suspects have reportedly admitted to the allegations.

Officers became aware of the matter in May. Three mail order catalogs for Flower, each 80 pages in length, were delivered to the chief at a police station in Osaka.

The catalogs were addressed to the chief’s personal address but were not deliverable to that destination. Postal employees then sought out an alternative address for the chief.

The police chief denied knowing why the catalogs were originally addressed to him. Hidaka said that the operation often sent catalogs out to random people.
