TOKYO (TR) – Tokyo Metropolitan Police have busted an Internet site based in Itabashi Ward for the sale of illegal pornographic DVDs, reports TBS News (Feb. 26).

On Wednesday, police took Lee Chin-yun, the 49-year-old manager of the site Adult Bomb, and one other employee into custody for the sale of DVDs in which genitalia was not censored. Police also seized approximately 80,000 discs.

Lee, a Korean national who operated the site from inside an apartment, admits to the allegations, telling police that he did it “to earn income to repay gambling debts.”
