Stressed prank caller threatens police with 4-ton bomb
A man who made nearly 190 prank calls to police, including one in which he threatened to blow up the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) with a 4-ton bomb has been arrested, police said.

The man, Junji Furukawa, 43, was arrested Friday on suspicion of obstructing officers from carrying out their duties after he made the prank calls. He has reportedly admitted having phoned police.

"I was stressed out with work and I got irritated," police quoted him as saying.

In addition to calling the MPD headquarters 189 times, Furukawa reportedly also made numerous calls to the Imperial Household Agency, the Japanese Communist Party headquarters, the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan, New Tokyo International Airport at Narita, and other organizations.
