NAGOYA – A staff member at an employment support facility for people with disabilities in Nagoya was arrested on suspicion of theft and other offences for stealing the cash card of a male user of the facility, handing it to another user of the facility, and forcing him to withdraw approximately 1.3 million yen in cash from an ATM.
The staff member denies some of the charges.
The suspect, aged 43, an employee of an employment support facility for persons with disabilities in Naka Ward, Nagoya, was arrested.
According to police investigations, the man who was arrested is suspected of theft because in April last year he broke into the home of a 67-year-old user of the facility where he works, stole his cash card, and then gave the card to another user of the same facility to withdraw a total of 1.39 million yen in cash from an ATM on three occasions. The man whose card was stolen consulted the police together with his family.
The suspect has denied some of the allegations, stating that he tried to get the resident to confirm the PIN number of the card on the first of the three occasions.
The suspect had already been arrested on suspicion of stealing the same user’s male card in January and withdrawing 1.14 million yen in cash.
