Police Seek Help Identifying ATM Fraud Suspects

by on March 31, 2015 1:35 PM

State College police are looking for two people suspected of using cloned ATM cards to steal cash from people across the state.

To clone a credit card, thieves copy information from a legitimate card's magnetic strip and make up a duplicate.

Police have surveillance photos of two suspects in the investigation: a man and a woman of unknown age and described as having "medium complexions." 

Several ATM's in the State College area have been hit, including Santander Bank on College Avenue, First National Bank branches at Heister and Allen Streets and the PNC Bank on Atherton Street, according to a police news release. The Ferguson Township and State College police departments are working together on the investigation.

Police say that none of the compromised accounts belong to State College residents, with some of the victims hailing from Dauphin and Cumberland Counties.

Police ask anyone with information to contact Detective R. W. Ralston at 814-278-4742 or Detective Devon Moran at 814-238-4651, or to submit an anonymous tip through the State College police department website.
