OCPD looking for attempted ATM PIN thief
On Aug. 30 at 1:41 p.m., Oregon City police were notified about a device apparently designed to steal Personal Identification Numbers (PINs) from ATM users.
OCPD Sgt. Matthew Paschall said a citizen found such a "skimming device" on the ATM at the Clackamas Federal Credit Union at Warner Milne Road in Oregon City, took possession of the device and brought it to the Oregon City police station to report the crime. A second unidentified witness reported a possible suspect vehicle description near the ATM. The vehicle was described as a newer dark-grey sedan.
Oregon City patrol officers then began to check neighboring bank ATMs for other devices, Paschall noted in a press release Thursday. At about 3:16 p.m. a second "skimming device" was found on the Columbia Bank ATM located on Molalla Avenue in Oregon City.
OCPD obtained surveillance photos of the suspect from both bank locations. The suspect is described as a white man with a short dark-colored beard, wearing long-sleeved collared shirts with different patterns, jeans and a baseball cap.
OCPD is asking for the public's help in identifying this suspect, so if you have any information regarding these crimes or the identity of the suspect, call 503-496-1616.Add a comment
