A Credit card skimmer was found at a gas station in Arizona, officials has warned people about that.

Two Skimmers were found at two gas stations Monday and Wednesday at Glendale, pushing the year’s total to 40.

The Pinal Country Sheriff’s office said a skimming device was found at the Bowlins gas station in Picacho. The gas station is off Interstate 10, south of Eloy.

Michelle Wilson With Arizona Weights and Divisions has said that the picture of the criminal is taken when he returned to take the information.

According to PCSO, the men pose to be either gas station or gas pump repair employees.
