London police have arrested a man in Romania in connection with a malware attack on ATMs which resulted in the theft of more than £1.5 million.


Emanual Leahu was picked up by the London Regional Fraud Team in Bacau this week and charged with conspiracy to defraud.

The charges are in connection with an investigation into a gang that organised a malware attack on a 51 cash machines in 2014, say police.

Each machine was physically broken into and infected with malware before large amounts of cash was withdrawn.

Two other gang members – Teofil Bortos and Grigore Paladi – have already been sentenced to a total of 12 years for their parts in the scam.

Leahu has been remanded in custody until the 28 October when he will appear at Inner London Crown Court.
