Submitted story



The Powell Police Department is looking for two suspects that are believed to be in connection with tampering and installing a skimming device on a local ATM machine.

Powell police responded to WesBanco, 10716 Sawmill Parkway, after employees discovered the ATM machine had been tampered with. An employee found that at approximately 5:15 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 4, two unknown white males are seen on video tampering with their exterior ATM machine.

One male had a beard and was wearing a Calvin Klein baseball hat, a hooded sweatshirt and shorts. The other male, also with a beard, was wearing a hooded sweatshirt, shorts and sunglasses. Both men appear to be in their early 30s.

The suspects are seen in the video using a tool to install a skimming device on the ATM machine.

The same unknown suspects are seen at approximately 6:50 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 5, using the same tool to remove the skimming device. The men arrive and leave on foot in both videos. In one video, a red vehicle can be seen pulling into the lot, possibly a SUV, hatchback or van.

Powell police found that 14 people had their ATM cards compromised. The total amount stolen was $5,398.50 in cash.

Any individual with information on the incident is asked to contact the Powell Police Department at 614-885-3374.
