The Metropolitan Police Department has arrested a former convenience store employee on suspicion of computer fraud involving the alleged use of customer credit card information.

Daijiro Kamino, 29, of Taito Ward, Tokyo, stole information printed on the credit cards during his part-time job at a FamilyMart in Chofu between February and September last year. He allegedly photographed the cards using a smartphone or wrote down the serial numbers, expiration dates and security codes when customers weren’t looking.
