A man was charged with using a skimming device to take over $200,000 from customer accounts.  He was arraigned on 45 counts of identity theft, grant theft, burglary, making fake ID cards and causing losses that exceeded $200,000.  He was caught when bank investigators discovered that someone was installing an ATM skimming device on the door of the bank's ATM lobby every Saturday after closing.  The device was then removed by the thief early on Mondays.  This happened for at least six consecutive weeks.  Hidden cameras were also used to record customer pins at the ATMs.
