WEST DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Police in West Des Moines say roughly 20 more people have come forward saying their credit cards have been charged extra after visiting a sushi restaurant. Twelve people reported to police last week that they saw extra charges after visiting the Eastern Buffet Sushi & Hibachi over the past two months. Police say the stolen card numbers were used to make purchases at other metro stores. KCCI TV in Des Moines reports the thieves used the card numbers to spend thousands of dollars at stores such as Walmart, Target and HyVee.
