Tokyo - A pensioner who dumped almost a quarter of a ton of pornography in a Japanese park is unlikely to be charged, police said on Tuesday, because the stash belonged to an ill friend.

Hideaki Adachi was spotted unloading 17 sacks of films and magazines, which included around 500 VHS video tapes, from the back of a truck at a small park in the western Japanese city of Osaka.

Adachi, aged 70, was arrested on suspicion of illegally dumping the 200kg of porn, but was released the next day after telling police he had found the trove in a storehouse belonging to a bedridden friend, police told AFP.

"He wanted to get rid of them out of goodwill for his friend", a spokesperson said.

Asked if the pensioner had left the library in the park with the intention of giving the material away, the spokesperson said officers thought not, because "the videos were not laid out to be seen".

Adachi, who worked as a volunteer in the park helping homeless people, had hoped that the huge collection of adult materials would be picked up and taken to a proper disposal site.
