Plant City police find credit card skimmer on ATM

PLANT CITY — Police discovered a credit card skimmer on a bank's automated teller machine Sunday and are asking people who used the ATM in the past six months to review their accounts.

Police found the skimmer, which captures personal identification numbers and credit card information, on an ATM at SunTrust Bank, 308 W Alexander St.

Police went to the bank after getting a call about a suspicious device. Officers determined it was a scanner and camera outfitted with a remote transmitter.

Police said they don't know how long it had been there.

Any of the ATM customers who find suspicious or unauthorized transactions are asked to call police. Police also ask people who have information about the skimmer or who may have seen suspicious activity around the ATM to contact Sgt. James Shultz at (813) 757-9200.

  3. Goodbye Tampa Bay Express, hello Tampa Bay Next; but toll lanes aren't going anywhere

    Transportation

    TAMPA — Tampa Bay Express is dead.

    But it's replacement — Tampa Bay Next — will likely include many of the same projects, including express toll lanes on the rebuilt Howard Frankland Bridge.

    The Florida Department of Transportation on Monday announced that it was renaming its Tampa Bay Express plan, also known as TBX. The plan will now be known as Tampa Bay Next, or TBN. DOT officials say there are still re-evaluating the most controversial aspect of the old TBX plan: spend $6 billion to add 90 miles of toll roads to bay area highways - Interstates 4,75 and 275 - that are currently free of tolls. But TBN will keep the plan to add express toll lanes to the rebuilt Howard Frankland Bridge. [Florida Department of Transportation]
