Geneva police say they've located a skimming device on a gas pump.

Police Chief Tony Clemmons says it was discovered Friday night.

This isn't the first case of skimming devices in the Wiregrass.

An attendant told police she noticed that a sticker on the pump had been stretched and showed void.

As far as Geneva police know, no one's information was stolen at this pump.

Chief Clemmons encourages people to pay close attention when using gas pumps and ATM’s.

"If you're pulling up to a gas pump, usually they have little tamper-proof seals by the lock where you stick your credit or debit card in,” said Clemmons. “Look at it and make sure everything looks legit with it - make sure it don't say void on it, because if it says void, that means somebody tried to pull that sticker off, and it shows void.”

Police also encourage you to take a close look at your credit card and bank statements, to make sure you've not been a target of this or similar crimes.
