3 Men Installed Card Skimming Devices at Queens Gas Pumps: NYPD

Police are looking for three men who they say are connected to 39 grand larcenies involving card readers at gas station pumps in Queens.

The three men allegedly installed card reading devices inside gas station pumps, allowing them to create fake debit cards. They then used the fake cards to make withdrawals from victims' bank accounts, police said.

The thefts occurred between June 21 and Sept. 23, according to police.

Police also said Monday they're looking for two suspects in a series of ATM card-skimming thefts at locations across Brooklyn and Queens from April 16 through June 15. 

Earlier this month, police said that ATM skimming thefts have quadrupled in the East Elmhurst, Jackson Heights and North Corona neighborhoods in Queens.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
