(CBS/AP) KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia - 725,000 condoms are missing in Malaysia.
Police in the southeast Asian nation have arrested three suspects in the massive pilfering of prophylactics, which disappeared last month.
Mohamad Shukri Dahlan, the police chief of Malaysia's northern Perak state, says the heist was "an inside job." He said Friday the suspects work for the firm responsible for transporting the condoms from the factory to the port, from where they get shipped to Japan.
Sagami Rubber Industries Co., one of Japan's biggest condom makers, said 85,000 boxes of ultra-thin condoms vanished in the heist - value, about $1.5 million.
The suspects intended to sell the condoms in Malaysia, but Mohamad Shukri said they had probably not succeeded.Beware a baby boom in Tokyo.
