Warrenton police discovered a card “skimmer” Wednesday afternoon in an ATM at the University of Virginia Community Credit Union.

Officers removed the device after the report at 1:55 p.m., Police Chief Louis Battle said in a press release.

The ATM security system produced a photo of “a person of interest,” Chief Battle said.

The investigation continues and police ask that anyone with information contact Detective Brian Kie at 540-347-1107, extension 232, or .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

“The Warrenton Police Department would like to remind the public to always check an ATM before inserting a credit/debit card,” Chief Battle added. “Beware that ATM card slots are different in color than the rest of the machine. Also, look for any unusual equipment attached to the ATM . . . (or if it) won’t accept your credit/debit card easily.

“Skimmers are sometimes attached to the ATM by glue or tape.”

Customers who notice something unusual should avoid using the ATM and should contact the financial institution immediately.

Law enforcement authorities have discovered “skimmers,” used to steal customer information, in fuel pumps and ATMs throughout the county this year.
