Konnech Corporation CEO Eugene Yu was taken into custody Tuesday by members of the District Attorney’s Office Bureau of Investigation on suspicion of theft of personal identifying information. They were assisted in part by the Meridian Township Police Department in Michigan.
Authorities in taking Yu into custody in Michigan also seized hard drives and other digital evidence, county District Attorney George Gascon said.
"When we entrust a company to hold our confidential data, they must be willing and able to protect our personal identifying information from theft," Gascon said. "Otherwise, we are all victims."
