Police served fresh warrants Tuesday on two men under arrest who are suspected of installing skimming devices and spy cameras at seven unmanned bank outlets in Aichi and Gifu prefectures and stealing more than 11 million yen from eight customer accounts.

The fresh warrants allege that Mitsuhide Kimura, 37, a resident of Nagoya who has South Korean nationality, and Kenji Tomizawa, 39, a resident of Kuwana, Mie Prefecture, used a counterfeit bank card and stole 168,000 yen from a customer’s account at a bank outlet in Nagoya last March 10.
