    Evan's Expressmart in White River Junction, Vermont, notified the Hartford Police Department of a suspicious device that did not belong on the card swiping system. Officials determined the device was a skimmer, which can be used by thieves to read credit card numbers.

    Officials say anyone who has used their credit or debit cards at the pump at Evan's Expressmart should follow-up with their bank.
