Florida man charged with stealing $750k from ATMs in Massachusetts

SEEKONK, Mass. (AP) — Police say a Florida man used fake credit cards to withdraw close to $750,000 from ATM machines in Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

Seekonk police say they arrested 26-year-old Dean Colin, of Miami, Thursday night after being notified that a man suspected of using fake credit cards to withdraw money from ATMs throughout the region was at a local bank.

Colin was arrested without incident. Federal and local police involved in the investigation also seized about $66,000 found in his car and hotel room.

Colin is expected to be arraigned Friday in Taunton District Court on two counts of larceny over $1,200 as well as credit card fraud charges. Police say other charges could also be filed.
