Urbana PD looking for suspect in ATM skimmer case


Urbana police are looking for a man they suspect is involved in using a skimmer device to obtain bank and personal information from customers.

Authorities began investigating the case Sunday, Aug. 5 after a customer discovered a device attached to an automated teller machine at People’s Savings Bank, 618 Scioto St. in Urbana. Since then police have been working with the bank both to identify a suspect and to track down potential victims.

A skimmer is an electronic device that can intercept personal information of customers who make transactions at the machine. Police also found a pin camera they say was strategically placed on the bank’s ATM to obtain additional information from customers. Both the skimmer and camera are being sent to a crime lab.

Police believe the device may have been on the ATM from July 28 to 29 and Aug. 4 to 5. No other dates can be confirmed. Authorities have also identified several customers who may have been affected. The bank is also working with those customers to protect their accounts and mitigate any further losses, according to information from the Urbana Police Division.
