Skimming devices found on ATMs, suspect sought

Tampa police are looking for a man who attached skimming devices to two ATMs.

The skimmers were found Sept. 1 on the ATMs at Sun Trust Bank, 1701 E. 7th Ave.

Photos from the security cameras show the man who installed the devices was wearing a dark-colored floppy hat and a dark T-shirt. He returned about 9:38 p.m., apparently to check the device. He was wearing an Armani Exchange T-shirt.

Law enforcement believe the suspect may be either Hispanic or Middle Eastern, in his late 20's, medium build, black or brown hair cut low, and a  full beard.

Crime Stoppers of Tampa Bay is offering a reward of up to $3,000 for information that leads to the identification and arrest of the unknown suspect involved in this case. Anyone with any information regarding the identity of the suspect and who wants to be eligible for a cash reward is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS (8477), report anonymously online at the Crime Stoppers website or send a mobile tip using the P3 Tips Mobile application. Crime Stoppers must be contacted first in order to be eligible for a cash reward.

Police recommend customers check their accounts and to contact the bank as soon as possible if you note a discrepancy.
