Tokyo police have arrested two former employees of toymaker Bandai Co. on suspicion of fraud in connection with the construction of the 18-meter-tall Gundam robot in the Odaiba district of the capital.

Takashi Udatsu, 44, who lives in Tokyo’s Minato Ward, has admitted to the allegation, while Takao Kurokawa, 66, a resident of Tokyo’s Katsushika Ward, has denied the suspicion, according to a Jan. 18 announcement.

The two men are accused of asking a contractor that built the life-size Mobile Suit Gundam robot and organized an event at the site to overcharge Bandai by 10 million yen ($91,000) in summer 2013.

The suspects pocketed the padded payments, according to the Metropolitan Police Department.

Police said they suspect the two fraudulently obtained about 200 million yen using similar methods between July 2013 and November 2016.
