FISHERS, Ind. (March 12, 2016) — Credit card skimming devices seem to be popping up everywhere.  The latest investigation is taking place at a gas station in Fishers.

Police say an employee found the skimming device inside a gas pump at the Shell gas station, located at 96th Street and North by Northeast Boulevard.

Investigators are currently trying to track down the thief responsible.

Police want to remind everyone to pay extra attention when using a credit card at the pump. Here are some safety tips.
