Police say a skimmer was found on the ATM at a Publix in Central Boca.

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — No word this afternoon how many people were impacted, but Boca Raton Police confirm that they are investigating a “skimmer” device that was apparently attached to the ATM at the Publix on St. Andrew's Blvd in central Boca.

Publix Spokeswoman Kim Reynolds tells BocaNewsNow.com, “We are actively working with local law enforcement to identify the individuals responsible. We do train our managers to inspect the ATM's to detect suspicious equipment or add-on devices that may be attached to the ATM or the area around.”

If it was operational, a skimmer may have copied bank account information and passwords from customers using the machine for deposits and withdrawals. It is important to check you bank account to determine if you may be the victim of unauthorized withdrawals. Contact your bank and Boca Raton Police if you see suspicious activity on your account.
