DENVER — A man police believe installed a credit card skimmer on pay machines at RTD light rail stations has been using stolen credit card numbers to make withdrawals at local ATMs.

According to a Crime Stoppers bulletin, credit card skimmers were placed on ticket kiosks during October and the first week of November.

According to RTD spokesman Scott Reed, neither they, nor Denver Police, were aware of the skimmers until customers started reporting that their credit cards had been compromised.

RTD worked with police to find that the light rail station at Interstate 25 and Belleview was a common thread.

The credit card skimmer was not recovered, Reed said, but investigators have identified a suspect and police released two photos of him.

Previously RTD and Denver Police reported credit cards skimmers were found at light rail stations at Mineral, Broadway and Dry Creek stations.

Those skimmers were recovered and RTD said no customer information was at risk.

Reed said the skimmer device in the recent case had silver plating. He said consumers should know that kiosks have a black credit card reader.

It’s not yet known if the current case is related to the previous skimmer incidents.

If you recognize this man, you are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP (7867).
