The Rochelle Park Police Department has arrested a New York City couple in connection with the use of an ATM skimming device at banks in New York and New Jersey, including a Chase bank branch in Verona.

According to the Hackensack Daily Voice, the pair is alleged to have stolen hundreds of thousands of dollars by collecting personal information from bank credit and debit cards used at ATMs. Perpetrators sometimes use this information themselves, or sell it to identity thieves. In early March, the Verona Police Department discovered a skimmer on the ATM at the Chase Bank branch located at the intersection of Claremont and Pompton avenues.
