Police revealed on Tuesday that an arrest warrant has been issued for talento Minako Komukai (25), who is suspected of violating the Stimulant Control Law. Komukai’s whereabouts are currently unknown.
Last October, police uncovered a narcotics trafficking organization that was selling drugs on the streets of Tokyo’s Shinagawa ward. So far, more than 10 members of the organization have been arrested, including some men of Iranian nationality. More than 20 male and female customers have also been arrested. According to investigators, Komukai is said to have also been a customer, and police decided to issue a warrant on charges of transfer.
Komukai was previously arrested in January 2009 on charges of use of stimulants. She was found guilty in court in February 2009, and she received an 18-month prison sentence, suspended for 3 years. Since the sentence is still under suspension, she will have to serve the term if she is again found guilty.
