The Harrison County Sheriff’s Office is seeking public assistance with the capture of four people who allegedly used credit card skimmers at a gas station and used the stolen information to purchase merchandise.

The Sheriff’s Office on Wednesday recovered four credit card skimmers from the gas pumps at Robinwood One Stop on U.S. 49 at West Wortham Road in Saucier. The skimmers have been siphoning motorists’ personal identifying information while they pumped their gas.

Video surveillance shows the same two men and two women at the gas station on three consecutive days before the skimmers were found, the Sheriff’s Office said.

On Thursday, a Wal-Mart surveillance video also captured the same four suspects at the Wal-Mart on U.S. 49 in Gulfport. The Sheriff’s Office said the suspects used multiple fabricated cards with stolen numbers to purchase merchandise. They also used a stolen card number on the same day at the Walgreens on U.S. 49 in Gulfport.

The suspects were traveling in a 2017 silver Ford Expedition. One of the male suspects has a large tattoo on his upper left arm and a tattoo on the right side of his neck. The other male is bald with a slim build. Both female suspects have long brown hair. One is pregnant and the other has a slim build.

Sheriff Troy Peterson has warned customers who bought gas at the One Stop to check their credit card statements.

The Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone with information to call 228-896-3000.
