Gang members were caught in New York, after stealing more than $45 million from ATMs, according to police reports.

The FBI said that six people were arrested and charged on Monday, for participating in stealing $45 million from two banks in the Middle East.

The five men and one woman, all residents of Yonkers, are accused of being members of a global computer crime organization, who stole MasterCard debit card information.

The six were arrested on Monday, after withdrawing more than $28 million from more than 140 ATMs in New York City, according to the U.S. attorney's office.

Hackers stole debit card data from the National Bank of Ras Al-Khaimah in the United Arab Emirates, and from Bank Muscat in Oman, in December 2012 and February 2013.

They broke into the payment processing companies used by both banks, and raised the balances and withdrawal limits on the cards. The gang withdrew $5 million between December 21 and December 22, and $40 million between February 19 and February 20.

The five arrested on Monday, were identified as Anthony Diaz, 24, Saul Franjul, 23, Saul Genao, 24, Jaindhi Polanco, 29, and Jose Angeley Valerio, 25.

Florida man exposes his privates in public and tells police 'I was just airing my penis'

William Gibson 
By: Ryan Lee Hall

A man had a weird excuse for exposing himself in front of many people including seniors.

William Gibson, 50, of Florida, exposed himself outside the Goodwill store in Winn Dixie Plaza on Jensen Beach boulevard.

A 65-year-old female Goodwill employee witnessed the incident and called police.

Witnesses told police that Gibson first put his hand down his pants and smelled his fingers before dropping his pants for all to see.

When sheriff's deputies arrived at the scene Gibson did not know why they were making a big deal of it.

He told police that he was just "airing out" his penis.

He also kept saying that he was going to hurt the Goodwill employees, who called the police, according to police.

He was charged with lewd or lascivious exhibition in the presence of the elderly.

A judge ordered $75,000 bond for Gibson.

This is not the most outlandish excuses by a flasher. One man, who was accused of masturbating in public, claimed that he was scratching a rash.

The man then decided to prove his claims by whipping out his privates and showing it to the responding officer.

Rather than arresting him for exposing himself again, the officer accepted his excuse and allowed him to walk free.
