Two more credit card skimmers have been found in metro Detroit with a third found on the west side of the state during a statewide blitz over the weekend.

According to the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, the blitz happened across the state on Saturday with help from more than a dozen agencies.

The skimmers were found at Mugg & Bopps South on Michigan Ave. in Howell, the Mobil on E. Grand River in Howell and a Citgo on 17 Mile Rd. in Cedar Springs, Mich.

This comes after a skimmer was found at an Ann Arbor gas station earlier this month. There have now been 46 credit card skimmers found across the state since August.

Other cities where skimmers were found include: Chelsea, Birmingham, Roseville, Rochester Hills, Detroit, Livonia, Dearborn, Howell, Westland, Wixom Belleville, New Hudson and Ann Arbor.

Skimmers can be installed discreetly, and steal your debit and credit card numbers every time a credit card is swiped at the pump.
