The Weldon Police Department is looking for the suspects responsible for placing a credit card skimmer on a Cash Points ATM.

According to officers, a skimmer was found on a Cash Points machine off Julian Allsbrook Highway, near Interstate 95, on Sunday.

Reports show a customer went to use the ATM and found a keypad cover over it that normally wasn't there.

It was later discovered that the cover had a camera attached to it so the keys a customer was pressing could be recorded and used later.
