Yesterday morning, officers were notified that a “skimming device” (used to illegally collect credit/debit card numbers) had been located on a fuel pump located in the 3700 block of Lamar Ave.

The device was removed and the investigation continues. Officers were also made aware that several skimming devices have been found recently in surrounding counties.

The police department recommends that citizens monitor their accounts for fraudulent transactions and also recommends that citizens consider paying for their fuel inside the stations/stores to eliminate the threat posed by the skimmers.

Below are examples of types of skimmers you can stay on the look out for.
