PLEASANT HILL (CBS SF) –- Two Southern California men were arrested in Pleasant Hill on Sunday on suspicion of cloning hundreds of ATM cards, police said.

Around 12:10 p.m. Sunday, police responded to a report of two men loitering around the Citibank ATM machines at 700 Contra Costa Blvd.

When the officers contacted the men, identified as 22-year-old Arman Vardanyan and 20-year-old Eduard Arakelyan, one of them fled on foot.
Officers chased him and caught him a short distance away.

The other man was arrested at the bank.

When the two men were searched, officers allegedly found several loaded firearms, a large quantity of cash and hundreds of cloned access cards, police said.

Both men were arrested and booked into county jail.

Investigators believe the men may have committed crimes in other nearby cities and anyone with information about the case is asked to call detectives at (925) 288-4630.
