Two Suspects Put Skimming Device On Bank ATM

Corpus Christi Police Detectives need your help identifying two men that they believe put a skimming device on an ATM at a bank located at 6230 South Staples Street on February 4.

Officers responded to the bank after a customer came inside and told employees that he went to use the drive thru ATM and when he inserted his card and attempted to pull it out, the card got stuck. The customer said he pulled harder on his card and that is when the dock where you insert your card broke off.

When bank employees went to investigate they discovered that the part that broke off was actually part of a card skimmer device that was designed to look like part of the ATM.  The skimming device was designed to fit over the card insert dock and was held in place with adhesive tape. When they investigated further, they also found a small camera that had been placed on the ATM and was also being held in place by tape.  They believe the camera was used to record people entering their bank pins numbers.

Police were able to obtain images of the suspects from the real camera of the ATM as they were placing the skimming device on the machine at about 7:30  PM on February 3.
