The Idaho Falls Police Department continues to investigate the installation of credit card skimmers on gas pumps at two gas station locations in Idaho Falls.

Employees at the Phillips 66, located at 495 W. 17th St., called police around 2 p.m., Thursday, after they found two credit card skimmers while examining a malfunctioning gas pump.

Then at 3 p.m., police received notification from employees of the Phillips 66, located at Broadway and Skyline, that skimmers had been installed on three gas pumps at that location.

The skimmers were removed immediately by police.

Thanks to the cooperation and efforts of the station owners, detectives have been able to determine that the skimmers were installed around 11:30 p.m. on Wednesday at the West 17th gas station, and after 1 a.m. Thursday at the Broadway and Skyline location.

Anyone that purchased gasoline at these locations and paid at the pumps during those hours is encouraged to contact their credit card company or bank regarding the transaction.

The police department has not received any further reports of credit card skimmers being found.

This case remains under investigation.
