BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

Several reports of credit card fraud led to the recent discovery of a skimming device at a Gulfport gas station. Biloxi police are now working to identify two suspects in the case.

Lt. Chris DeBack, with the Biloxi Police Department, said several of the victims started reporting the fraud more than two weeks ago.

According to police, the victims reported unauthorized charges to their credit cards from a business on Pass Rd. in Biloxi. Two men were caught on surveillance video at the business making the purchases, DeBack said.

Investigators said the fraud victims all had one thing in common. They had all recently purchased gas from the same gas station in Gulfport. That’s what led police to the skimming device on a gas pump.

If you can identify the suspects or have any information that could help police solve this case, please call Biloxi police at 228-435-6112 or Crime Stoppers at 1-877-787-5898.
