ATM "skimmer" found in Marion

MARION (KWWL) -- Marion Police are looking for a man they believe may have placed a "skimmer" on an ATM at a US Bank in Marion on Monday.

Sergeant Lance Miller says a man with banking experience used the ATM at the US Bank at 895 31st Street at around 1:00 pm on Monday and found the device after his card got caught on it.  Police believe the "skimmer" was placed on the machine at around 9:30 Monday morning.

A "skimmer" is a device thieves use to steal your personal information off of your ATM card.

Miller says they hope to know how many people are impacted by this on Wednesday afternoon.

He added that this "skimmer" was so well done that bank employees used the ATM without knowing it was there.
