Credit card skimming device discovered at Woodland Market

Friday, April 18, 2014 - 4:45 p.m. - At approximately 11:30 a.m. on April 18, Mariposa County Sheriff’s deputies located a credit card skimming device on Pump #3 at the Woodland Market gas station.

These types of devices are used by criminals to fraudulently acquire credit card information from cards inserted into the credit card slots on the outdoor gas pumps.

Deputies believe the skimmer was put in place on or about April 11, 2014. Currently deputies believe only pump #3 was compromised by the device.

At this time the device has been removed and the pumps are currently functioning properly. Other local fuel vendors have been notified to check their pumps for illegal devices.

"This case is currently under investigation by our office. We recommend anyone who may have used credit / debit cards at the Woodland Market gas pumps contact our office and their financial institution," said Undersheriff Joel Bibby.
