Braintree: Police issue warning following skimming device find
2:00pm Saturday 28th September 2013 in News
Police have issued a warning to shoppers after a sophisticated skimming device was found on a Braintree cashpoint.
Officers are now trawling through CCTV footage from nearby cameras to see if they can spot who fitted the device in the ATM at the entrance to Tesco in Market Place.
A Braintree bodyguard, who asked not to be named, raised the alarm at 9.30am on Monday, September 16 when he noticed the contraption.
He said: “It was such a good device that unless people are really aware of it, they will get caught out again."
