Prosecutors: Thieves Stole $2M After Planting Devices On Gas Pumps


CBS New York

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Thieves planted devices on gas pumps to copy credit and bank card numbers and used the data to steal more than $2 million in a scheme that hopscotched from the Southeast to New York City to the West Coast, prosecutors say.

Four suspects pleaded not guilty to money laundering and other charges Tuesday in Manhattan. Nine others were being arrested. A lawyer for accused ringleader Davit Kudugulyan declined to comment.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. said the group somehow installed devices that captured card and PIN numbers inside pumps at gas stations in Georgia, South Carolina and Texas.

Prosecutors say the scammers then forged new cards, withdrew cash from Manhattan ATMs, deposited it in bank accounts and withdrew it again from banks in California and Nevada.

Kudugulyan; Garegin Spartalyan, 40; Aram Martirosian, 34; and Hayk Dzhandzhapanyan, 40, are charged in a 426-count indictment with money…

Body parts found in Queens may be linked to missing autistic boy


QUEENS, N.Y. — A human arm and legs that were discovered Thursday along the shore of College Point, Queens, could be linked to the case of Avonte Oquendo, a missing boy with autism who disappeared in October.

According to WPIX, police say an arm was discovered by a child, who took a picture of the body part and showed it to his mother back home. The mother then called police.

Police then launched a search of the area and found two legs.

Police told WPIX that the feet had a pair of size 5 1/2 Air Jordans, which are the kind of shoes Oquendo was wearing when he disappeared from a school in Long Island City on Oct. 4.

The park where the body parts washed up is 11 miles from Oquendo’s school.

The investigation is ongoing.
