Punta Gorda police say a skimming device was found at an area gas station.

An employee discovered the skimmer on a pump at the Circle K on Duncan Road.

Officials with the Charlotte County Sheriffs Office called it an ‘old school skimmer,’ one set up for swiped cards rather than chipped ones.

Police say it was likely done by someone in the overnight hours Monday into Tuesday and was likely put on when only one employee was working.
