Another Card Skimmer Found at Lancaster Casey's

LANCASTER, Mo.- In a follow-up to our earlier story regarding a card skimmer device that was found on a gas pump at the Memphis Casey’s location, KMEM News has now learned that a similar device has been found on a gas pump at the Lancaster Casey’s location.

Officials with the Schuyler County Sheriff’s Department say that they were notified Friday afternoon of a possible card skimmer on pump #3.  The device appears to be the same type of skimmer that was found at the Memphis location.  This second device also appeared to be Bluetooth equipped.

Law enforcement authorities believe the device was inserted into the Lancaster pump sometime between late Wednesday night to Friday afternoon.  Officials say that this type of device is not something you can spot by looking at the outside of the pump itself.  These devices have been attached to circuits inside the pump.

Officers with the department say that most gas pumps have a security seal on them to prevent tampering.  They are asking the public to always look for that seal and make sure it hasn’t been tampered with.  If you spot a broken seal, they advise you to not use the pump and instead alert the store management. 

The Schuyler County Sheriff’s Department is working with Casey’s corporate, as well as state and federal law enforcement officials to determine who is responsible for placing these devices and what information the devices may have obtained or stored.  They further state that if you used pump #3 at the Lancaster Casey’s between Wednesday and Friday and paid at the pump using a debit or credit card you should monitor those accounts closely for fraudulent activity.  If you have been the victim of this crime, you should contact your banking institution and local law enforcement immediately.
