Gatesville police found and removed a credit-card skimmer from a pump at a local gas station Wednesday morning.

Police say the skimmer was placed on fuel pump No. 4 at the Pruitt's Shell on 1316 North State Highway 36 in Gatesville.

Officials say a small circuit was placed on the card reader, saving numbers of any cars used at that fuel pump.

Police believe the skimmer was installed early in the morning sometime between Feb. 3 and Feb. 5 while the store was closed.

Police and Central Texas Crime Stoppers are asking for anyone with information to come forward.
