From the Daily News:
Daniel Gheorghe and Ionel Cristian Popa, both 33, were busted back in March at a Chase bank branch with $17,700, mostly in $20 bills, plus 66 counterfeited coupons.
The deceitful duo coded the blank gift cards - which can be picked up at many Dunkin' Donuts counters - with account information stolen using a skimmer device.
The two Romanian nationals then settled into a Chase branch on Hillside Ave. and started withdrawing in "a rapid pace," said a source.
The bank had flagged the compromised accounts and alerted police once funds were being taken out.
The two defendants, who are facing seven years in prison if convicted, now have to smell the coffee.
They were arraigned last week, pleaded not guilty to grand larceny and fraud and each was ordered held on $150,000 bail.
They don't have a U.S. address and claimed they entered the country in early 2011 on journalist visas.
