ASPEN - Police discovered a skimmer on an Aspen ATM Monday evening.

The device was found on a Wells Fargo ATM after officers were dispatched to the bank on a heat sensor alarm. Officers also discovered a small camera attached to the ATM.

Criminals use the camera to record the PIN number while the skimmer records account information from the magnetic strip on a credit card.

Security footage will be reviewed in an effort to determine how long the skimmer has been in place and to identify potential suspects. Police believe the skimmer may triggered the heat sensor alarm.

Citizens are and encouraged to monitor their accounts closely if they have recently used their debit card at a Wells Fargo ATM in Aspen.
