Tokyo Metropolitan Police have arrested a male national of Sri Lanka who is suspected in the fraudulent purchase of nearly 40,000 liters of fuel in Ibaraki Prefecture last year, TBS News reported.

Thus far, police have accused the Sri Lankan national, 20, and two others of using a credit card in the name of another person to pay 400,000 yen for 3,500 liters of diesel at a gasoline station in the town of Goka last October.

The Sri Lankan and one other suspect admit to the allegations. The third suspect denies the allegations, the Asakusa Police Station said.

According to police, the suspects are believed to have used the same means to purchase 37,500 liters of fuel, valued at 4.2 million yen, at 10 gasoline stations in the prefecture that same month.

An employee at one station said, “It was strange because some foreign-looking men filled up five or six drums early one early morning.”

    When will our so called Sri Lankans stop bringing disrepute to our country? Shameless waste of space, sucking up good valuable oxygen.
