Four Charged In Long Island ATM Skimming Scheme

NEW YORK (1010 WINS) — Police have arrested four high-tech bank bandits on Long Island.

Three men and one woman — all Romanians — were charged with grand larceny, unlawful possession of personal identification information and computer crimes after stealing more than $200,000 as part of an ATM skimming scheme.

Police said the defendants had been using cameras which mounted over an ATM machine and went undetected by customers.

Authorities said the devices captured card and pin information, which was then used for gift cards.

All four defendants were arraigned Thursday.

The Nassau County District Attorney Office and the U.S Secret Service had been conducting an investigation dating back to November 2009 to August of this year.
