SAN DIEGO (Crime Stoppers/CBS 8) - San Diego County Crime Stoppers and investigators from the Santee Sheriff's Station are asking for the public's help to identify and locate a man wanted for trying to steal people’s credit card information at an ATM.

On November 27th, around 12:30 p.m., an ATM technician discovered a skimmer attached to an ATM at the Mission Federal Credit Union located at 245 Town Center Parkway in Santee.

It is believed the skimmer was placed on the ATM 30 minutes before it was discovered. The memory card inside the skimmer was recovered. No ATM or credit card information was stolen.
