Card reading device located at local gas station (Photo) - 09/23/15
On September 22, 2015 at 2:05 pm, a technician reported that he had found what appeared to be an electronic skimming device installed in a single gas pump at the Buy 2 76 Gas Station, located at 1720 North Highway 99W. Employees reported credit/debit card reader malfunctions on the pump for approximately 90 days. At this time, it is unknown whether any credit/debit card information has been compromised or if the installation of the device caused the card reader to malfunction.

The McMinnville Police Department suggests that you check your bank and/or credit card statement for any abnormalities if you have purchased gasoline from this location in the past 90 days.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to contact Officer Steve Macartney at or 503-434-7307 and refer to case number 15-4437.
