They won’t say where the skimmers were installed. But the surveillance pictures appear to be inside the lobby of a financial institution and a drive up ATM. 

They say he has been working with at least one other man since April in the 3 suburbs.

Dearborn Police also say in some cases, they’ve installed a video camera at the top of the machine to record people entering their PIN number that can be used to access accounts. 

These cases were discovered by people who found the skimmers on the machines or they were discovered by the businesses when they serviced the machines. 

The illegal skimmers are usually placed and left only for a couple of days, then moved. 

Police would not say how much money has been stolen.
