Columbus police arrested a suspect in a credit card-skimming investigation, but now they have to figure out who they have in custody.
Lt Matt Harris, spokesman for the department, says officers were contacted after a Main Source Bank employee found the device on an ATM on Washington Street Sunday, during a routine maintenance check. The Bluetooth enabled skimming set up also included a video camera to swipe PIN numbers, Harris says.
The suspect was identified from a bank video, as the same suspect from a credit card scam last week. He was arrested at a local hotel, where other items used in skimming were found in two rooms, Harris said. The suspect was arrested on preliminary charges of possession of a card-skimming device and possession of a false government identification card.
But the suspect will not identify himself and had no valid identification on him. Harris said the police are working with national authorities to determine the man’s name. Two other suspects are still at large. Police have released video stills which you can view here.
