LEVITTOWN - ? Police say two men are accused of stealing cash from customers at Citibank ATMs in Nassau County. According to police, Stefanita Macau and Teodora Paslan attached electronic skimming devices to ATM machines at multiple Citibank locations. The suspects have no known address and are believed to be from eastern Europe, possibly Romania.

Investigators say the devices were installed at branches in Levittown, East Meadow, Garden City and South Huntington in Suffolk County.

Authorities say the men stole more than $17,000 from bank accounts over the last two and a half weeks. Macau and Paslan were arrested in Hicksville yesterday and will be arraigned on grand larceny charges today.
