Economic Crimes Detectives are urging citizens to be mindful when using the ATM.

They say that the place where the ATM card is inserted should have a green circular card slot and no parts should easily pull off of the front of the machine.

Detectives have asked store employees to be aware of anyone who spends an unusual amount of time at the ATM or attempts to conceal their identity.

If you find a skimming device, do not touch or attempt to remove it. Call 911 to file a report immediately.
