Hudson Valley Man Charged with Stealing From ATM
Police claim a Hyde Park Man stole over $12,000 from an ATM in Wappinger using a skimming device.
The Poughkeepsie Journal reports, 26-year-old David Marrine has been charged with first-degree falsifying business records and grand larceny in the third-degree.
Marrine was employed at a Stewart’s in Wappinger. He used a skimming device to take people’s personal data from the stores ATM, stealing over $12,000 in an undisclosed amount of time.
According to FBI.gov, skimming devices planted on ATMs are usually undetectable by users. They normally blend into the ATM’s surface. The device is typically a realistic-looking card reader placed over the factory-installed card reader. Customers insert their ATM card into the phony reader, and their account info is swiped and stored on a small attached laptop or cell phone or sent wirelessly to the criminals waiting nearby. Hidden cameras are also often used. The cameras are installed near an ATM and used to record customers entering their ATM PINS.
Marrine is scheduled to appear in the Town of Wappinger Justice Court on October 18th.
