The Town of Tonawanda Police Department is looking for a man suspected of using skimming devices to steal people's credit card information.

Credit card skimmers use special devices that can copy and clone credit card information. These devices are placed in locations you would commonly swipe your credit card, like ATMs and gas pumps.

Police are trying to identify the man pictured above.  They describe him as a white man in his mid-twenties, who is tall and thin with a goatee.

Police believe he could also be committing identity theft.

If you recognize the man you are asked to call the Confidential Tip Line at 879-6606.
