5 Sentenced in Plan to Loot ATMs

Five people were sentenced in U.S. District Court Friday on conspiracy and counterfeiting charges stemming from an ambitious scheme to loot perhaps millions of dollars from automated teller machines during a three-day holiday weekend.

Authorities say the five manufactured thousands of bogus automated teller cards using information stolen from Bank of America. Mark Koenig, 28, of Los Angeles, was sentenced in Los Angeles to 41 months in prison. He pleaded guilty in May to a count of conspiracy and five counts of producing and using counterfeit automated teller cards.

Robert Hussey, 28, of Marina del Rey, was sentenced to 30 months in prison on the same charges.

Koenig’s wife, Jacklyn Bobby, 33, received 30 months in prison for conspiracy and two counts of counterfeiting. Her sister, Bobbi Jo Bobby, 20, of Ladera Heights, was sentenced to 21 months on one charge each of counterfeiting and conspiracy. Scott Koenig, 27, of Lincoln, Neb., Mark Koenig’s brother, was sentenced to 18 months for a single charge of conspiracy.
