Three men -- one from Elk Grove Village and two from Glenview -- have been charged with placing a skimmer device at a Naperville ATM and using the stolen information to make more than $25,000 in illegal purchases, police said Friday.

Charged with continuing a financial crime enterprise are Alin Doina, 48, of Elk Grove Village; Dorin Marchidan, 47, of Glenview; and Adrian Popa, 43, of Glenview.

During their four-month investigation, authorities said, they also saw the suspects committing similar offenses in Carol Stream, Wilmette and other suburbs.

Naperville police said they worked with officers from those towns along with the Secret Service and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement as part of their probe.

Police said they began receiving reports from victims in June complaining that their debit cards had been compromised and cash had been withdrawn from their accounts without their knowledge. Investigators discovered the skimming device had been planted at the ATM allowing the suspects to record card numbers and PIN numbers.
