    ATM Skimming Device Found at Vermont Bank

    Police say they found an ATM skimming device and pinhole camera at a bank in Hartford, Vermont.

    The devices designed to steal debit card information were found Saturday at the Mascoma Savings Bank.

    Police said their investigation showed the devices had been installed that same day, at about 6 a.m. They released a bank surveillance photo of a possible suspect.

    Mascoma Bank Security Officer Pete Begin tells the Valley News bank officials worked with the ATM service provider and Hartford Police to have the device removed by 1 p.m. Saturday.

    Begin said Mascoma Bank believes no customer information was stolen because the device is almost certainly designed so that the suspect would have to physically retrieve it to download the data.

    He still advised bank customers to monitor their accounts.
