LA CRESCENTA — Sheriff's detectives are investigating a security breach at a local Chase bank where alleged thieves placed a credit card skimmer on an ATM that may have allowed them to steal customer information.
Detectives are waiting to receive critical evidence, including surveillance tapes and a list of potential victims, from the Chase bank on the 2900 block of Foothill Boulevard to determine the scope of the July 24 breach, said Los Angeles County Sheriff's Sgt. Ray Harley, who's based in La Crescenta.
Detectives don't know whether any accounts were breached because they need those details from the bank, he said.
A resident who was going to use the bank about 6 p.m. on July 24 noticed a credit card skimmer had been placed on the ATM and called the sheriff's station, Harley said.
