Fort Stockton police investigating card skimmer found in gas pump

FORT STOCKTON, TX (KWES) - The card skimmer was found in November and police just released information about the case in order to find victims who may have had their cards compromised.

The skimmer found at a Fort Stockton gas station was placed inside of the pump. Police believe the culprit used their own key to place it.

The skimmer was removed immediately and the pump was re-keyed by management.

"Since they pulled the skimmer out of the gas pump, we haven't had any more issues. Now it's just we are trying to go back in time and see if anyone has reported to their banks that their credit cards have been compromised here in Fort Stockton," said Police Chief Arturo Fuentes.

Police say they are not revealing where the skimmer was found, but they are asking for the public's help. They want you to come forward if you suspect your card was used illegally during October or November of 2015.
