A 22-year-old minimart cashier in Bekasi, West Java, allegedly embezzled Rp 177 million (US$12,500) from a store through fake transactions using ATM cards and transferring the funds to his personal electronic wallets on several e-marketplaces.
Bekasi Police spokesperson Comr. Erna Ruswing Andari said the police arrested the cashier, identified as Arlyandi Indra Pratama, after the police investigated a report filed by PT Sumber Alfaria Trijaya, the owner of the minimart on Jl. Sultan Agung in Medansatria district. The company claimed to have lost Rp 177,876,800.
"After investigating the case, we finally named AIP a suspect," Erna said on Sunday as quoted by tempo.co.
Erna said the suspect committed the crime by making fake transactions and connecting the cashier computer with his accounts on e-marketplaces such as JD.id, Over, Bukalapak and Donewalet.
"The money [from the fake transactions] was transferred to his accounts," she added.
Arlyandi allegedly withdrew the money and used it to buy t-shirts, a washing machine and other items.
He has been charged under Article 374 of the Criminal Code on embezzlement.
As evidence, the police also seized transaction receipts, a computer, several t-shirts and a washing machine. (vla)
