Gas Pump Card Skimmers Are Showing Up All Over The State Of Texas


Tyler police say more card skimmers have been located at a gas station in the city.

Public Information Officer Don Martin said Thursday that the skimmers were found at the Exxon at Commerce and Loop 323. According to Martin, several skimmers have been found at the location before.

Thursday's discovery is not the first time card skimmers have been found in the city.

In July, multiple people were arrested after a months-long multi-agency investigation into card skimming case.

Tyler Police Department, the U.S. Secret Service and the Smith County Sheriff's Office all participated in that investigation. Officials said at the time of the arrests that the skimmers were found inside the gas pumps. More than a dozen gas stations in Tyler, and another dozen in other parts of Smith County, had pumps that contained skimmers. KLTV
