2 Arrested in West Metro Skimming Scheme
Two people from California were busted here in Minnesota for setting up credit card skimming devices in the pumps at a local gas station.
Plymouth police arrested Sarkis Mkhsyan and Gohar Yesayan late last week.
Inside their car, police found a list of nearly 100 metro gas stations, a cordless drill and items to make fake credit cards.
Officers went to a gas station in New Hope, where they found skimming devices on six of the eight pumps. Those devices allow the suspects to get credit card information when someone swipes their card at the pump.
The suspects had credit card information from many people in the west metro.
