Last Friday a suspicious car was noticed near the ATM at Barclays Bank, High Street, Tonbridge.

Kent Police officers stopped and searched the car and found items associated with card skimming devices.

Colin Claudiu, 23, of Britannia Close, Erith, and David Moldovan, 49, of Langdon Crescent, East Ham, were later charged with possession of an article for use in fraud and conspiracy to steal and remanded in custody. Claudiu was also charged with driving offences.

Police believe the incident is linked to the discovery of a suspicious device on a Barclays Bank ATM, High Street, Sevenoaks, at 7.30pm last Thursday. Officers found a card retaining device with a camera attached which they then took off the machine.

Two other men and a 27-year-old woman were also arrested and bailed in connection with the Tonbridge incident.
