BALTIMORE - The U.S. attorney's office say a Moldovan man has admitted to using an ATM skimming device to get debit and credit card numbers.

Twenty-two-year-old Serghei Rotaru, who lives in Salisbury, pleaded guilty Thursday in U.S. District Court in Baltimore to conspiracy to commit access device fraud. He faces a maximum sentence of 7 1/2 years in prison at sentencing for May 11.

According to his plea agreement, a Cambridge police officer questions Rotaru after he walked away from an ATM that ahe had accessed with a counterfeit device. Officers found $800 in cash, and a department store gift card with a pin number.

Prosecutors say Rotaru also had several other gift cards encoded with stolen information.
