Skimming device at Bucks County credit union 'skimmed numerous cards,' police warn

Police are warning credit union customers that they may have fallen victim to a skimming device as they look to identify a suspect caught on camera.

The skimming device was found last weekend at the drive-thru ATM of American Heritage Credit Union in Fairless Hills on Oxford Valley Road. Levittown Parkway in Bristol Township.

It's estimated that the device "skimmed numerous debit cards," according to police.


Surveillance captured the moment the device was installed by the alleged suspect.

"Feeling cute, might be identified for installing a card skimmer later!" Bristol Police said in a Facebook post Saturday.

Police say the suspect was so hard at work installing the skimmer that it appears he didn’t notice the camera right in front of him. He’s wearing a surgical-like mask. But a closer picture provided by police shows at one point the mask slipped down a bit revealing more of his face.

"Well with the ATM is like I would look for something unusual and then sometimes I pull on it to see if anything is loose or doesn’t look normal," said Gail Gilroy. 

She said she inspects the device and keypad anytime she’s withdrawing money or swiping or tapping her card to buy something because she rarely uses cash.

"It’s very hard not to use your card. So, I think anybody should take the precaution as much as you can," she said.

If you used the same ATM, check your bank statement for any suspicious activity. Police say the device skimmed numerous cards.

Anyone who knows the suspect, or has any information is asked to contact police.
