A card skimmer was found inside pump No. 2
at Crown Colony Food Mart yesterday morning.
An employee notified police after finding
the skimmer around 11 a.m. Thursday during a morning pump check. The pump had
previously been checked around 11 p.m. Wednesday and the skimmer was not there.
We are in the process of reviewing store
surveillance to determine when the skimmer was placed.
Based on the pump check times, the skimmer
couldn't have been in place more than 12 hours.
We advise people who used that pump between
11 p.m. Wednesday and 11 a.m. Thursday to closely monitor their bank accounts
or get a new card to be on the safe side.
We applaud this store for doing pump checks
to ensure the safety/security of its customers.
