Two arrested in alleged ATM skimming scheme

Charges have been filed against two men suspected of using debit card numbers stolen from a PNC Bank automated teller machine in Frederick, police said Wednesday. Mihai Ittu, 39, and Stefan Iancu, 31, were arrested in Oklahoma, where they face similar charges, Frederick Police Lt. Shawn B. Martyak said. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents tracked the men from California, where they are also accused of similar crimes. The two have been charged with several counts of identity theft, credit card misuse and theft of more than $500. Ittu was also charged with involvement in a theft scheme. It was not clear whether Ittu and Iancu installed a skimming device on the ATM at the PNC Bank at 191 Thomas Johnson Drive, Martyak said. Frederick police executed several search warrants last week and recovered some evidence, according to Martyak.
