Two men sentenced to 20 years in Waikiki card-skimming scheme

[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

Two men were sentenced Tuesday to mandatory 20-year prison terms for first-degree identity theft by using a card-skimming device attached to an ATM in Waikiki to steal people’s credit and debit card information.

The Hawaii Paroling Authority will decide how much of their 20-year terms Armen Apoyan and Argishti Khachaturyan will have to serve before they can be eligible for parole.

Circuit Judge Rom Trader credited Apoyan with the time he has already been in custody since his arrest in Washington state in March last year. Trader gave Khachaturyan credit for the time he’s been in custody since his arrest in California in September 2013.
