KCSO recovers cash, card skimmers in North Knoxville raid

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Knox County Sheriff's Office Detectives recovered more than $17,500 in cash during a North Knoxville Apartment raid.

Authorities also found eight gas pump skimmers, several laptops, a magnetic credit card reader/writer, several re-coded credit cards and more.

KCSO worked with several agencies in a multi-state investigation that lead to a White Pine traffic stop of three suspects involved with this incident.

This serves as a reminder for the public to be cognizant of potential scams lurking at gas stations and elsewhere. Always check for skimmers before swiping a card.
