Charlotte-Mecklenburg police arrested two men Friday and charged them in connection with placing skimming equipment on an automated teller machine at a Sun Trust Bank in Charlotte.
Police say Luca Pizzingrilli and Savin Iantoc were charged with financial card forgery, conspiracy, and possession of financial transaction card forgery device.
According to a Charlotte-Mecklenburg police report, a small camera concealed in a mirror and an electronic card reader were found Friday on the ATM in the drive-through outside Sun Trust Bank on South Boulevard.
CMPD says it’s a federal investigation. Secret Service agents told WBTV “we have an open, joint investigation with CMPD.”
