Police did not reveal whether the suspects admit to the allegations.

The involvement of Morinaga emerged during another investigation. Last month, police first arrested the suspect for driving without a license after a hit-and-run accident left one woman injured in Nagoya’s Minato Ward.

During the burglary, the occupants were taking an overseas trip that extended for two nights. Police are investigating whether Morinaga knew in advance that the residence would be unoccupied.
