PASADENA - Surveillance cameras at a Pasadena federal credit union caught a man slipping a skimming device and camera into an ATM, allowing him to steal more than $25,000, police said.
The suspect installed the devices March 24 and March 25 after visiting the same ATM March 19 and March 20 to test them out, ultimately stealing the victims’ PIN numbers and debit card data to take the cash, Pasadena Police said.
An undisclosed number of accounts were compromised.
The suspect is a white man, 30 to 40 years old, 5-foot-9 to 5 feet 11 inches tall, weighs 185 pounds, has brown hair and a full beard. Police believe he may wear sunglasses to conceal his identity from surveillance cameras.
Anyone with information on the suspect is urged to call Pasadena Police Detective Carter at 626-744-6416, or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Information can be provided anonymously by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
