Posted: Updated:

Guam - Guam Police Department officers have noticed an alarming trend of tourists falsely reporting being victims of crimes so they can obtain insurance when they return home to Japan. Kosuke and Rie Kimura were arrested after they told police that money had been stolen from the hotel room's deposit safe box. 

Officers found the missing money within their personal items.  Both were arrested for making a false report.

Officers also arrested Keiji Saji, who told police that he had been robbed. Officers found the reported stolen items in his hotel room. GPD says the tourists make the reports, get a police number and then return home to be reimbursed for what they spent on Guam, but keep the items they reported stolen.
