Tokyo - Two Japanese men were arrested on Tuesday for allegedly stealing money from an ATM, with local media reporting they were part of a coordinated nationwide heist that netted millions of dollars earlier this month.

The theft on May 15 reportedly involved about 100 members of an international gang each making a series of withdrawals from 1 400 ATMs around the country in less than three hours, Japanese media reported.

The haul totalled ¥1.4bn ($13m), according to the reports, with cash-dispensing machines in Tokyo and Osaka among those targeted.
