Seven people were arrested by Little Silver police after an attempt to take advantage of the Santander ATM glitch. The widespread issue allowed continued withdrawals from prepaid credit cards.

Around 9 am on Tuesday, Little Silver police received a report of suspicious activity at the Santander branch on Sycamore Avenue. There were two vehicles, one leaving the parking lot at a high speed, that the police were able to stop. Once officers had intervened, two of three individuals in the vehicle fled on foot through the woods. They were apprehended within 15 minutes, police told The Red Bank Green.

The individuals in the second vehicle were arrested as well. A third vehicle pulled into the lot, and police discovered that the occupants were also attempting to make illegal ATM withdrawals.

The following individuals are held in the Monmouth County Correctional Institution: Briana Aviles, 22, of Newark; Zamir Knox, 21, of Union; Martin Rosendary, 24, of Union; Markeem Jackson, 36, of Brooklyn; Giovanni Tyrell, 24, of Teaneck; Wayne Hill, 22, of Brooklyn; and Raim Duplessis, 23, of Newark.

Every individual arrested was charged with credit card theft, theft, receiving stolen property, fraudulent use of credit cards, obstructing administration of law, possession of a controlled dangerous substance and conspiracy.

In Holmdel, a Brooklyn man was arrested Tuesday for attempting to withdraw cash from the faulty Santander ATM with a prepaid credit card.

There is a string of these crimes occurring in the tristate area, as reported by the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office.
