A NY man has been accused of stuffing two ATMs in Manhattan with counterfeit cash.

Gene Carlo Pena worked for a company that serviced the ATMs.

He faces several charges, including embezzlement and other charges related to counterfeit currency.

The fake bills were put in ATMs at two Chase bank branches to replace cash that had been stolen. The bank was short a total of $11,000.

The counterfeit bills were blank on one side and authorities believe they were meant to trick the ATM into believing it was carrying a full complement of cash.     

However, the machines were able to distinguish most of the fake bills from real ones, a bank official said.
