Perry Co. Sheriff says up to 15 victims of card skimmers


PERRY COUNTY, Miss. - Perry county officials said there are now up to 15 victims of card skimmers at Tater's Food and Fuel off Highway 98.

Sheriff Mitch Nobles said authorities found another card skimmer in one of the gas pumps.

Last week authorities took out two card skimmers in two separate pumps and were sure there were no more.

"At this time the FBI will not assist with the case" said Sheriff Nobles.

Perry county deputies and New August police are working with the Hattiesburg Police Department in search for a suspect.

Sheriff Nobles said Tater's Food and Fuel is now clear from any other card skimmers inside its gas pumps.
