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.

    what happened to the credit to the Nassau County Police Dept and the New York City Police Dept. The truth was the NCPD, the NYPD and the Secret Service did all the investigation. Get it right. Nassau County District Attorney came in on the end..

  4. Rodney Rod says:

    The news did not release their names or pictures because they are Romanians. If they were minorities the news would have released pictures and names.
