ATM Skimming Alert

Last weekend, a Credit/Debit card skimming device was discovered on the ATM machine at The Castle. It was discovered before any of the collected data could be stolen by the suspect(s).

The Village of Chester PD is conducting an investigation with the cooperation of The Castle. Two suspects were identified and the investigation is on-going.

The panel to the left of the keypad was actually fake and had a pinhole camera focused on the keypad to record pin numbers. The card reader was placed over the real reader and captured the card data.

Everyone should be cautious and physically check the card slot prior to putting their card in at stores and gas stations.

If there is any doubt, go in and use the reader at the register. If you locate a suspicious device, please report it immediately.
