GOOSE CREEK, SC (WCSC) - Police in Goose Creek hope someone will recognize the people they say were involved in placing a skimming device on an automatic teller machine.

The photos are in connection with a skimming device placed on the drive-thru ATM at the First National Bank, Goose Creek Police Maj. John Grainger said.

An incident report states a bank employee called police to report surveillance footage showed a woman placing the device on the machine at approximately 8:09 a.m. on Feb. 19.

The security camera also showed a man removing the device at approximately 7:41 p.m. the same day, the report states.

A skimming device is designed to secretly read and record bank account information from the magnetic strip on a card, thereby compromising your card's data.

It is not yet clear whether any customers of the bank have reported any irregularities in their accounts that could be tied to potentially-stolen data from the skimming device.

Anyone with information on the identity of the people in the photos is asked to call the Goose Creek Police Department at 843-863-5200, Investigator Dodson at 843-863-5200, ext. 2337; or Crime Stoppers at 843-554-1111.
