WACO, Texas (KWTX) -Five credit card skimmers have been discovered on pumps at the Sunoco gas station at 825 West Waco Dr., police said.

“At this time, its unknown just how long the skimmers were on the pumps,” Waco police Officer Garen Bynum said.

The skimmers were removed after they were discovered Wednesday, and police are advising residents who purchased fuel at the store recently to check back accounts and credit card statements.

“We want to advise our citizens to pay inside the store with your debit or credit cards or just use cash. Those are the best options for not falling victim to credit card skimmers,” Bynum said.
