Police are asking the public’s help identifying a crew of crooks who hatched a plan to steal credit card numbers from patrons at an Upper East Side deli, officials said Tuesday
The thieves — three men and a woman — placed a skimming device on an ATM inside the Blue Moon Deli on First Ave. near E. 91st St. on Oct. 20, according to cops.
Two of the thieves distracted a 30-year-old deli employee while the other two placed the item — which is designed to read and store credit cards numbers — on the machine.
The credit card reader was on the machine for two days before it was discovered, officials said.
Police on Tuesday released surveillance video of the suspects.
They are described as white and in their mid-20s to early 30s, officials said.
The female suspect was wearing a black hat, light-colored shirt and black pants. One of the men was wearing sunglasses, a green shirt and colored skinny jeans. The second man was wearing sunglasses, a black baseball cap, red shirt and black skinny jeans. The third man was wearing a black-and-white baseball cap, pink shirt and gray shorts.
Anyone with information is asked to call NYPD CrimeStoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.
