PAPILLION, Neb. (KMTV) -- — Police need your help tracking down a couple people caught on camera putting a skimmer on a metro area ATM, so they don't make another person a victim.

The Papillion Police Department says on December 8 at about 9am, a man walked up to an outdoor ATM and put a credit card skimming device on it as well as a camera. It's used to get your card number, and then record your PIN when it's punched in. About 12 hours later a woman comes back and takes the device off the ATM.

Police say a customer reported suspicious activity to their bank because their info may have been taken during that time period.

"This is very good coverage of it so yeah if you recognize these people contact the Papillion Police Department and our investigators are working on it now actually following up on some leads that they've received already," Lt. Jerry Prazan explained.

Police are working to find out if the suspects are local, or if they're part of a traveling skimmer ring. They would not reveal which ATM the crime took place at.

Police suggest monitoring your bank transactions, covering your PIN when you put it in at the ATM, and examine the card scanner because if it's loose it may be a skimmer.

If you have any information on who the suspects are contact the Papillion Police Department at 402-597-2035.
