Berlitz Teachers Arrested for Drug Smuggling

Police announced on Thursday that they have recently arrested three English teachers on charges of smuggling marijuana into the country using international mail. The three, who all used to teach at the same Berlitz school in Osaka, are accused of using an online drug dealer that operates out of Canada. 25-year old Anthony Momirofsky and a 33-year old fellow Australian allegedly received 15.1 grams of marijuana, with a street value of about ¥120,000, on March 16. They claimed that the stress of life abroad had been their main motive. Both have already been prosecuted. Police also arrested a 31-year old Canadian who received 13.9 grams of marijuana on April 6, also from the same site.
