A 27 year old Japanese man, Yoshitomo Imura, was arrested for making handguns with a 3-D printer. The police said that two of the five guns recovered were capable of firing. No bullets were discovered at the Yoshitomo's home in Kawasaki, south Tokyo.
Imura who is an employee of Shonan Institute of Technology in Fujisawa, bought the commercial 3D printer online for ¥60,000.
“I can’t complain about the arrest if the police regard them as real guns,” he reportedly said.
The police launched an investigation earlier this year after Imura posted a video online where he demonstrated about the guns which he claimed he made himself.
