Police Raid Toyota Offices After Employee Arrested for Drugs

Police raided Toyota’s headquarters and its Tokyo and Nagoya offices on Tuesday after the arrest of a senior American executive on suspicion of drug law violations.
A Toyota spokesman, Ryo Sakai, said the company could not comment on the raids because the investigation is ongoing.
Julie Hamp, Toyota’s newly appointed head of public relations, was arrested on 18 June on suspicion of importing oxycodone into Japan.
The synthetic pain killer is tightly controlled in Japan.
Police stated the drugs were in a parcel Hamp mailed to herself.
Hamp was in the middle of moving her possessions to Japan.
She had been living in a Tokyo hotel, where police arrested her.
