NEW YORK — Police are searching for four men they say are placing credit card skimming devices in Manhattan supermarkets.
Police received 23 connected reports of credit card fraud between Feb. 27 and March 29.
During the investigation, police linked the fraud back to devices placed in several supermarkets around New York City. The devices stored personal information from credit and debit cards associated with purchases made by the victims.
The money was then illegally removed from the victims' bank accounts at ATMs in Manhattan and Queens using forged cards.
Police have released photos of four men wanted in connection with the robberies.
