Six suspects in $45M ATM heist arrested


Law enforcement arrested more suspects for their alleged connection to an international ATM heist, which drained banks of $45 million.

The suspects – Anthony Diaz, 24; Saul Franjul, 23; Saul Genao, 24; Jaindhi Polanco, 29; and Jose Angeley Valerio, 25 – are believed to have operated the New York cell of “cashers,” who withdrew money from ATMs after other criminals raised the limits on victims' accounts by hacking a credit card processor.

The five New York residents pleaded not guilty this week to conspiracy to commit access device fraud.

Back in May, news of the scheme came to light when eight individuals were charged for their alleged involvement.

A sixth defendant, Franklyn Ferriera, was also arrested on Monday, but awaits arraignment.
