Iberia Parish Investigating Card Skimmers Placed at Two Stores
The Iberia Parish Sheriff’s Office is currently investigating two cases where credit card skimmers have been placed on fuel pumps. Merchants at two convenience stores in the parish were experiencing problems with their fuel pumps and technicians discovered credit card skimmers had been placed inside the pumps. The fuel pumps were believed to have been opened sometime during the weekend and the credit card skimmer were plugged in line to capture the user’s card information. The two stores affected at this time are located at La. 182 / Darnall Rd. and La. 86 / Emile Verret Rd. Investigators have recovered 8 skimmers at these locations. Customers who used these locations during the weekend should monitor their credit accounts for any suspicious activity. This is an active investigation and anyone with information should contact the Iberia Parish Sheriff’s Office at 369-3711 or Iberia Crime Stoppers at 364-TIPS.
