Denis and Jackson were each charged with second-degree unlawful possession of a skimmer device. Police said Jackson also was charged with fourth-degree grand larceny. Beasley was charged with four counts of second-degree possession of a forged instrument.

All three men were arraigned Friday in First District Court in Hempstead.

Court records indicate Beasley was ordered held on $20,000 bond, which he was unable to post, while Jackson was ordered held on $10,000 bond and Denis on $5,000 bond. Denis posted bond and was released. Jackson posted bond on Sunday and was released.

All three are scheduled to appear again in court Tuesday.

It was not immediately clear if any had entered pleas.

Police said that Walker, who is scheduled for arraignment on March 25, was arrested by Crimes Against Property Squad detectives after investigators found she was using a skimming device to illegally obtain the credit cards of customers at the Dave & Buster's on Old Country Road.

Police said they believe the incidents began March 1.

After obtaining the information, police said Walker passed it along to Denis, Jackson and Beasley -- though it was not immediately clear if any of the information was ever used.
