Two crafty criminals are wanted for allegedly installing and operating a skimming device on an ATM within a Bayside bank, police said.

Between the hours of 11 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 1 and 11 a.m. on Friday Sept. 2, one or both unidentified individuals installed a skimming device on an ATM inside of Dime Community Bank at 61-38 Springfield Blvd., according to authorities.

 

Police would obtain security camera footage showing the two individuals installing and/or checking the device on Friday, Sept. 2; the skimmer was discovered by bank personnel that same day.

Luckily, as of press time, police had not reported any compromised bank accounts associated with the skimmers. The devices obtain the account information of users; that data could be used for financial fraud.

The two unidentified suspects — pictured below — wore a blue Nautica baseball cap and a camouflage baseball cap to help conceal their identities.
