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.
