The arrest of popular actress Erika Sawajiri over the weekend came as a result of an investigation into a club in Shibuya Ward, investigative sources tell Told Sports Nippon (Nov. 18) On Sunday, police sent Sawajiri, 33, to prosecutors over the alleged possessions of 0.09 grams of MDMA, which is also known as Ecstasy. at the time of her arrest on Saturday, she admitted to the allegations.
“I have been using illegal drugs for many years,” Sawajiri later told police. “MDMA is one that I’ve used before” The paper cited her lawyer In reported that she received the contraband from her boyfriend. Other news report said that she also admitted to using cocaine, marijuana and LSD.
About one month before Sawajiri’s arrest, police used a tip to launch a special investigation centered on the organizers of a club in the Maruyamacho area of Shibuya Ward.
On November 10, officers responding to a trip apprehended by Kazuma Yoshizawa, a 30-year-old trader in virtual currencies, at the club. Yoshizawa, who goes by the name Kazmax was later accused using of MDMA. Last Friday, Sawajiri attended an event held at the same club. In footage provided by TBS news, the actress, attired in a muffler and glasses, is seen leaving her residence in meouro Ward at around 9pm that day.
Drank and Danced
At least one witness told Fuji News network that she drank alcohol and danced with other customers inside a VIP room. At 8:43 am the following morning, officers entered the residence and found two white capsules containing a power inside an accessory case near the entrance.
An analysis of the content of one of the capsules gave a positive result for MDMA, police said previously.
Police are no investigating how sawajiri obtained the MDMA.
I am surprised that this actress is just cooperative and telling the police how long she has been using this. In Japanese culture, especially in entertainment industry, they have zero tolerance for Yakuza and another thing is for illegal drugs. We recently had a few other celebrities who got arrested for meth or MDMA. and this is a ritual..kind of sad but since her reputation is damaged, although her main role in this big Japanese movie was set to go on air in January 2020 but they will have to switch the actress immediately Sawajiri will likely to have to pay back the damage in loss, which is said to be more than 5 million US dollars and on top that he may never be able to return to this entertainment. her acting is praised and even experts admit that this girl is freakin talented.I hope that instead of criminalizing the case, but the society is more supportive for people like that.
