Police did not release information about how many cards the man used, but people from throughout the Tri-Cities and as far away as Yakima and Hermiston have been victims.
The information may have been swiped using a “skimmer,” Pasco police said. The device attaches to the front of a card reader. As the victim uses the machine, the device stores the card’s information, so the crook can pick it up later.
Anyone with information about who the man is can contact Tri-Cities Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477 or through the organization’s website, www.tricitiescrimestoppers.org. Information leading to the man’s arrest may lead to an up to $1,000 reward.
