Police: Teens found with credit card skimmers

 PARKERSBURG, W.Va. (AP) -- Police have accused two juveniles of being part of a criminal enterprise to steal credit card information using card skimmers.

Parkersburg Police Chief Joe Martin says a Vienna officer pulled over a 17-year-old boy and 14-year-old girl for speeding on Wednesday afternoon.

The News and Sentinel reports that officers searched the vehicle and found between 40 and 50 manufactured credit cards, cash, smartphone cameras and skimmers.

Martin says criminals install skimmers inside ATMs or card-readers on gas pumps, where they record information. A small camera can also be used to record PINs.

Martin says the children had been living in Florida. He says the 17-year-old had been deported twice from Arizona and has deportation proceedings pending out of Boston. It is unclear what country the teenagers are from.
