Weights and measures inspectors in Keith’s office will check more than 60 gas stations during the last 10 days of 2016 for skimmers, during a holiday sweep. Inspectors have found now devices so far, but they have a couple hundred more pumps to check.
However, since Dec. 17, three skimming devices were found in Butler County. Devices also have been identified and removed in the Toledo and Lima areas.
Skimmers often are installed around the major holidays when many people are traveling and may not pay as close attention to their financial accounts.
