Nassau County prosecutors have added new charges and a new suspect in the case involving the skimming of credit card information from Long Island Rail Road ticket vending machines.

Dorin Husa, 37, and Niculae Peter, 45, of Elmhurst, who were charged in Queens earlier this month, face charges of first-degree unlawful duplication of computer-related material; five counts of second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument; criminal possession of a forgery device; and fourth-degree conspiracy, according to a statement issued by Nassau District Attorney Kathleen Rice.

Both men are in custody in Queens. They were arrested last month along with Valer and Teodora Zaharia, who were arrested in Nassau, for allegedly rigging ticket machines with cameras and scanning devices in order to steal credit and bank card information from thousands of people. All are Romanian nationals
