Skimmer Devices Located in Gas Pumps
On Sunday, 12/09/18, approximately 2:00 pm, officers with the Monument Police Department responded to the Diamond Shamrock gas station located at 1310 W. Baptist Rd. Upon arrival they discovered that unknown subjects had forced entry into three of the gas pumps at the station and placed illegal electronic skimmer devices in them. The skimmers were placed in line with the gas pump electronics, and are used to store information obtained from credit/debit cards used at the pumps. This information can then be retrieved by the suspects and used to commit fraud and identity theft. The skimmers may have been placed on the gas pumps as early as Wednesday, December 5, 2018.
Possible suspect vehicles are a dark green van or a white pickup truck.
Anyone with information related to these skimmers is asked to call the Monument Police Department at 719-481-3253.
