Iowa City Police are asking for the public's help in identifying a person whom they suspect might have been attempting to place a skimming device on an area ATM.

The ICPD posted these photos of the man in question on their Facebook page. The pictures appear to have come from the ATM's security camera.

Skimming devices attached to gas pumps and ATMs are just another way modern-day thieves are able to rip off unsuspecting customers and cause a whole lot of trouble for victims trying to repair damaged credit due to identity theft.

According to CBS2 News, it appears the images released by the ICPD indicate the suspect placed the skimmer or returned to it on December. 8,, 2018 around 5:39 p.m.

Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to call ICPD at 319-356-5275, or Iowa City Crime Stoppers at 319-358-8477. Please refer to ICR 2019000254.
