9 in Orlando are charged in series of thefts at ATMs

Nine people, including members of a family with alleged links to the Russian mob, were charged with a series of ATM thefts after a shootout with Orlando police Friday, police said.

Officer Robert Bond, a member of the Orlando Police Department SWAT team, was shot in the neck during a police raid at the two-floor home of 70-year-old Paul Krasniqi. Authorities said his wound did not appear life-threatening.

Police arrested Krasniqi, his wife Lena, their daughter Pasca, and six other people and seized their family-owned restaurant, Johnny's Diner.
