QUEENSBURY — A Long Island man who was arrested in May after he was found with several stolen credit cards and a device used to steal credit card numbers has pleaded guilty to a felony.
Samson Daramola, 30, of Uniondale, pleaded guilty to second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument, a felony, for his May 11 arrest in Lake George.
He was pulled over for a vehicle light issue and found to have marijuana. When police searched his vehicle, they found six stolen credit cards as well as a credit card skimmer that can be placed on an ATM or gas pump to steal numbers, police records show.
He was charged with felony counts of criminal possession of a forged instrument, misdemeanor possession of a skimmer device, noncriminal unlawful possession of marijuana and traffic violations, the State Police public information website showed.
Under the terms of a plea deal, he was put on interim probation for a year based on his plea to a felony. If he does well, he will spend 5 years on probation. If not, he faces a state prison term of up to 7 years.
