WOBURN, Mass. (AP) - Two men have been sentenced to 18 months in prison for fraudulently withdrawing tens of thousands of dollars from several Massachusetts banks using stolen credit and debit card numbers.

The Sun of Lowell (https://bit.ly/2sZgNZS ) reports that 31-year-old Antonio Testone, of Italy, and 29-year-old Bogdan Ionut Bujor, of Romania, were sentenced this week in Middlesex Superior Court after pleading guilty to charges including larceny and electronic fund transfer violation.

Prosecutors say the men used skimming devices on ATMs to steal credit and debit card numbers and then used stolen numbers to make fraudulent withdrawals at banks in Burlington and Bedford.

Prosecutors say more than $100,000 in fraudulent transactions were made.

Searches of their car and hotel room turned up 151 cards and more than $13,000 in cash.
