TOKYO (Reuters) - A Japanese man who was mystified when food kept disappearing from his kitchen, set up a hidden camera and found an unknown woman living secretly in his closet, Japanese media said Friday.

The 57-year-old unemployed man of Fukuoka in southern Japan called police Wednesday when the camera sent pictures to his mobile phone of an intruder in his home while he was out on Wednesday, the Asahi newspaper said on its Website.

Officers rushed to the house and found a 58-year-old unemployed woman hiding in an unused closet, where she had secreted a mattress and plastic drink bottles, the Asahi said. Police suspect she may have been there for several months, the paper said.

"I didn't have anywhere to live," the Nikkan Sports tabloid quoted the woman as telling police.

Local police confirmed that they had arrested a woman for trespassing, but would not comment further on the case.

When I read that, my first thought was "Is she hot?"

Yeah don't act like that's not what you thought.

If this dude just listened to some Al Green every once in a while, everybody would've been happy. BTW, are the Japanese so technilogically advanced now that even the unemployed can just poop out video surveilance systems? Seriously.

I was thinking the same thing. Also, I've got a few friends that live in Tokyo, and pretty much all of the apartments there are tiny. What kind of unemployed man not only has video surveillance, but an unused closet that is big enough for someone to live in?

I don't even want to know how someone goes about secreting a mattress...

I think something got lost in translation on that one.

I had to google it to figure out the second definition that would be funny
