PROVIDENCE — A federal judge has sentenced a Florida man to three years in prison for using stolen identities and fraudulent cards to make withdrawals from more than 100 ATMs in Rhode Island and Massachusetts over two days.

Dean Emmanuel Colin, 27, of Miami, pleaded guilty on Sept. 11 to bank fraud conspiracy and aggravated identity theft. U.S. District Court Chief Judge John J. McConnell Jr. on Tuesday sentenced Colin to 36 months in federal prison and three years of supervised release, according to a news release from the office of U.S. Attorney Aaron L. Weisman. The court will determine restitution at a later date.

Seekonk police arrested Colin outside a Santander Bank on May 23 after bank security noticed him making repeated ATM withdrawals using multiple cards. Colin was carrying nine ATM cards when he was arrested, and police found additional cards inside his vehicle.

An investigation by the U.S. Secret Service, and the Seekonk and Warwick police, determined Colin and others encoded blank ATM cards with others' personal identifying and account information, which had been stolen during a data breach, according to the U.S. Attorney's news release.

Authorities said Colin rented a hotel room in Foxboro on May 22 and spent the next two days traveling around Southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island, attempting to make ATM withdrawals. He succeeded making at least 112 transactions, totaling $174,660, according to the news release. 

A search of Colin's hotel room resulted in the seizure of $65,920 in cash, according to the news release.

Additionally, federal authorities obtained a search warrant for a package Colin sent from Warwick to his home in Miami. Inside, according to the news release, they found a cereal box containing several plastic bags of wrapped bundles of cash totaling $48,500, labeled with the names of co-conspirators.
