The skimmer was found Tuesday at the Rapid Pak Market at 4810 Murfreesboro Road.

Deputies say a cloned credit card was used at two Sam’s Club locations in Murfreesboro and Antioch.

Authorities discovered the skimmer with the help of the store’s manager and owner.

News 2 spoke with drivers like Chris Ford who said they have considered paying for gas inside to avoid the devices.

“It makes you think about it for sure,” he said. “But a lot of times, you’re in a hurry, you have to do what you have to do.”

Anyone with information on the men’s identities or whereabouts is urged to call the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office at 615-790-5554 Ext. 3229 or Crime Stoppers at 615-794-4000.

Deputies added it’s important for the public to know that skimmers are most often placed on pumps at the ends of the service area because it’s more difficult for employees in the store to see.

Also, pumps should have seals on the access doors. If the seal is missing or broken, it may be a sign of tampering.
