Card skimming device found on credit union's ATM

Discovery believed made before customer use

EXETER TWP., Pa. - Police are working to identify the person who installed a bank card skimming device on an automated teller machine.

Employees of the Diamond Federal Credit Union on Perkiomen Avenue in Exeter Township found and removed the device during a daily inspection of the machine last Thursday, according to township police.

Police said they believe the discovery was made before anyone used the ATM with the device in place.

A typical device, smaller than a deck of cards, fits over the existing card reader of ATMs and gas pumps and is used by thieves to steal bank and credit card information.

A grainy surveillance image shows the vehicle of the person who installed the device at the credit union in Exeter Township, police said.

Anyone who can identify the SUV or knows anything about the case is urged to contact Crime Alert Berks County via anonymous text to 847411, starting the message with keyword alertberks, or by calling 877-373-9913.
