A credit card skimming device was discovered at a Shell gas station at the corner of Williams Boulevard and Jadwin Avenue.

Richland police found the device attached to a gas pump on Wednesday morning. They say it could have been placed there as early as Monday morning.

Credit card skimming devices are used by criminals to discretely steal a customer’s credit or debit card information.
