COLUMBUS, Ind. (WISH) — One person is in custody after authorities found a card skimming device at Columbus bank ATM on Sunday evening.

It happened around 6:20 p.m. when officers responded to a call at the bank when a employee located the card skimmer. Officers then located a bluetooth video camera authorities believe was used to steal PIN numbers from customers.

The MainSource Bank in the 800 block of Washington Street has been identified as the bank.

Security surveillance found that suspects who were involved in a credit card fraud case that occurred in Columbus a week before were recognized from this incident.

Officials were able to track down one of the suspects at a hotel where he was taken into custody.

He faces preliminary charges of posession of a card skimming device and possession of a false government identification card.

Anyone with information on the crime is urged to call the Columbus Police Department at 812-376-2600.
