NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Two men have been named as suspects in the “sophisticated” credit card skimming case out of Franklin.

Two weeks ago, police issued a consumer alert to warn people who used the pumps at a Murfreesboro Road gas station.

Authorities said devices were found inside a locked door and wired to the pump. They appeared to have been there for at least 12 days.

At the time of their discovery, 10 victims had been identified.

Police say 10 more have come forward and reported fraudulent purchases on their accounts after they used those gas pumps.

The two men seen in surveillance photos are accused of using information from at least one of the stolen credit cards to make a fraudulent purchase at the Mallory Lane Sam’s Club in Franklin.

A cash reward of up to $1,000 is being offered by Franklin Police and Crime Stoppers for information on the men.
