Three plead guilty to trying to hack into Lowe's computer
Three Michigan men have pleaded guilty to charges that they conspired to hack into the national computer system of the Lowe's home improvement chain to steal credit card information, federal authorities said Wednesday.
Under plea agreements, Brian Salcedo, Adam Botbyl and Paul Timmins pleaded guilty to just a handful of the 16 charges each man originally faced, the U.S. Attorney's office said.
Under a plea agreement, Salcedo, of Whitmore Lake, Mich., pleaded guilty to four counts: conspiracy; transmitting computer code to cause damage to a computer; unauthorized computer access; and computer fraud.
