The Missouri Highway Patrol arrested Norimasa Saito, 42 of Osaka, Japan, after he allegedly used multiple fraudulent credit cards. According to the Patrol report, Saito charged $27,000 to the fake credit card at the Ameristar Casino in St. Charles.
Use of the fraudulent cards occurred between May 31 and April 3. The Missouri Highway Patrol was alerted by the Royal Bank of Canada that eight transactions were not approved by their customers. A total of sixteen transactions were made at the Ameristar that were all caught on surveillance footage. Saito also completed transactions at the Lumiere Casino and the River City Casino.
According to Saito, an unknown Chinese man at the Kansas City International Airport gave him two credit cards that had his name on them. Saito went on to tell police that he was recently given four more cards. All cards were seized by the Highway Patrol and were clearly altered.
