Police have arrested two men who allegedly "skimmed" more than $500,000 from ATMs across the Auckland region.

The arrests of the men, 27 and 28, followed a long investigation by the police financial crimes unit, police said.

The men are due to appear in the Auckland District Court tomorrow facing 54 charges of using counterfeit ATM cards, nine charges of obtaining a document and one charge of possession of implements for forgery.

Wellington police and banks helped the Auckland police with their investigation, which was carried out between February and this month.
