Copy-MPD investigating new report of skimmer found at Madison gas station

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) – Madison Police say another skimmer was found at a gas station on the city's near-east side.

An inspector with the city's weights and measures department found the skimmer during a routine inspection at the BP at 735 E. Washington Ave. on Tuesday. Police seized the device from the gas station and it will be turned over to the FBI.

At this time, police say it's unknown if this new case is connected to two California men being arrested last week in another gas station skimming case.

The inspector who found the skimmer told police he had last checked it on November 14th and did not find a skimmer at that time.

Police urge people to be vigilant as the holiday travel season gets underway and take precautions to prevent yourself from a potential skimmer – including paying for gas inside.
