Credit card skimmer found in Somersworth


SOMERSWORTH - Another credit card skimming device has been found at a gas station, this time inside pump 8 at the Mobile Station at 196 Tri-City Plaza in Somersworth.

According to Foster's Daily Democrat, the gas station manager called police Wednesday after a technician found the device.

“Depending on what type of data we pull, we may be able to notify people that their card was compromised,” Somersworth Police Capt. Russ Timmons said. “If we are lucky maybe it leads to the person who installed it.”

Police are also looking at surveillance footage.

There is no indication when the skimmer was attached to the pump. Timmons said people who have used the pump may want to contact their financial institution.
