Former 'Power Rangers' Actor Used His Stuntman Skills To Rob Homes In Japan

by Adam Pliskin

Uh oh. A former "Power Rangers" actor has been arrested in Japan on robbery charges.

Yasutomo Ihara, 32, was a "Power Ranger" suit-wearing stuntman for the show.

Apparently, Ihara used his stuntman abilities to break into Japanese homes by climbing up the sides of them or by employing the aid of nearby telephone poles.

He is said to have ripped off 43 houses and taken over $77,000 worth of money and items.

Ihara retired from stunt work after hurting his knee five years ago. He was supposedly saving up for acting school and desperate for money.

It looks like that dream is probably dead as Ihara awaits sentencing.
