Two Florida men were charged Friday in connection with the installation of credit card skimmers at several Wisconsin gas stations.
Josue M. Garcia Moret, 26, and Richard Rivera, 30, face five felony counts of attempted identity theft for financial gain.
Elm Grove Police alerted local gas stations to the scam last week. An employee at Jilly's Mobil Carwash on West Bluemound Road discovered a skimming device on one of their pumps. Investigators removed the device and set-up an internal alarm system to notify officers of any further tampering.
