Police on Thursday arrested actor Junya Ikeda, 31, on suspicion of being involved in a special fraud scheme.

Ikeda debuted in 2006 and appeared in the TV show “Kaizoku Sentai Gokaijer,” which is part of the Super Sentai series, as well as on stage.

Police said that Ikeda is suspected of conspiring with other suspects to defraud a man of his cash card this year by posing as a police officer and visiting the man’s home in Koto Ward, Tokyo. Evidence of Ikeda’s involvement includes security camera footage and other sources.

Ikeda’s talent agency announced Monday that it had terminated its contract with him on Friday.
