Duo arrested in Canandaigua for multi-county gas station card skimming scheme

Two men were arrested and charged in connection with a gas station card skimming scheme in multiple counties, including Wayne County.

According to our news partners at the Times of Wayne County, the manager of Crosby's on E. Main Street in Palmyra found a skimmer device installed on one of its pumps last month. He determined it had captured information for at least two weeks in the month of November.

State Police investigators said at least 20 people who used the pump at the store in Palmyra became victims. One woman from Palmyra said her credit card was used in places as far away as Arizona.

The report states the device inside the pump recorded the credit card data, transferred it to a phone via Bluetooth, then into a machine that put the information onto a blank credit card.
