Authorities: Yonkers ATM thief may be linked to other crimes

Authorities in Yonkers have arrested a Romanian man for allegedly planting a camera at one of the city's ATM machines, and say they are investigating whether the suspect is linked to similar scams across the country. The Secret Service, as well as city and county police, arrested Victor Udila yesterday for allegedly installing the camera at the Chase Bank near Central Avenue and Roxbury Drive. Police also say he installed a skimmer, which steals customers' card information, on the bank's front door. "You put your card in, it allows you access," Yonkers resident Jean Terroni says. "There's nothing to lead you to think there's anything out of the ordinary." Officials say the arrest may be linked to an international crime ring. They point to the NYPD's recent arrests of more than 100 people for identity theft, where hidden cameras and card skimmers were allegedly used to steal thousands of dollars.
