YAMAOKA, Japan, May 2 (UPI) -- A woman wearing a wetsuit and swimming goggles was arrested at a golf course in Japan for allegedly stealing about 1,500 golf balls.
Natsumi Tsujita was arrested Saturday on suspicion of theft.
The Mainichi Daily News reported the 60-year-old woman admitted to the allegations, saying she wanted spending money.
Police said Tsujita collected golf balls from the bottom of the 6-foot-deep lake near the 15th hole at the Sasadaira Country Club in Yamaoka.
Using a waterproof flashlight to find the golf balls Tsujita put the golf balls into a net attached to a floating swimming ring, and by early Saturday had collected 1,554 balls.
The Supreme Court in Japan has ruled lost golf balls are the property of the golf course.
