Members of the Hancock County Auditor’s Office will take part in a statewide investigation of gas pumps. The Courier reports the effort is meant to find credit card skimming devices. Skimmers are small electronic devices that criminals attach to gas pumps. The devices are able to steal credit and debit card information.
More than 80 inspectors will visit more than 1,500 gas stations across the state over the weekend. Inspectors in Allen and Putnam Counties are also taking part in the effort.
At least 30 skimming devices have been found in Ohio since last October. Hancock County Auditory Charity Rauschenberg says many have been found along the I-75 corridor in southwest Ohio.
