ALEXANDRIA, VA. - An Alexandria man has pleaded guilty to bank fraud Tuesday in a $1.2 million skimming device scheme.

Roberto De Miranda Martinez, 43, targeted ATM machines in Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania and elsewhere. He had been caught and arrested while installing a skimming device on an ATM in Colonial Heights, Virginia in January. According to prosecutors, he would use the skimming device to obtain ATM card data and clone cards. Between last August and January, he fraudulently withdrew funds with stolen credit or debit card numbers.

An FBI investigation uncovered $1.2 million in losses from the scheme. The FBI's Richmond Field Office, Colonial Heights Police and Chambersburg, Pennsylvania Police Department assisted with the investigation.
