CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) — A man accused of using bogus cards to steal money from ATMs in the Cedar Rapids area has taken a plea deal.
The Gazette reports that 21-year-old Romica Martuica, who is from Romania, pleaded guilty Tuesday in U.S. District Court. The charges: illegal transactions with an access device and aggravated identity theft. He originally was charged with 10 related counts.
His sentencing has not yet been scheduled.
A court document shows that Martuica and another man used more than 50 magnetic strip cards on Feb. 16 to steal nearly $8,700.
Authorities say the magnetic cards contained the account numbers of different victims.
