Authorities say they've busted members of a financial-crime crew that has been looting Chicago ATMs using stolen information.

Negru Raul, 25, and 23-year-old Vasile Dobos, were arrested earlier this week after Chase Bank tipped police to suspicious activity at cash machines near Addison and Elston.

Investigators suspect they are part of a Romanian group accused of draining customers' bank accounts with an elaborate rip-off system using equipment they attach to the ATMs. They are charged with felony identity fraud.
