Investigators have located another skimming device at a Ralston gas station.
The Ralston Police Department says the latest discovery was made at the MegaSaver at the intersection of 72nd and Harrison streets after the business had a professional examine its pumps.
The investigation into skimming devices in Ralston began on Dec. 30 when two were found at the Super Store at 83rd and Harrison streets.
Officials released a public awareness bulletin with pictures of the device and information about how it worked.
“The device was homemade and Bluetooth enabled. It was connected between the pump’s credit card readers and computer, which allowed it to operate off the pump’s power supply,” the bulletin said.
This is how unsuspecting the device looks. This is going to our local fuel stations. pic.twitter.com/4LQbfZS3dB

To protect yourself the FBI says you should inspect any ATM, gas pump or credit card reader before using it.
“Be suspicious if you see anything loose, crooked, or damaged, or if you notice scratches or adhesive/tape residue,” they said.
