A card-skimming device has been found and removed during a sweep of over 500 gas stations in multiple parishes.
The Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry Weights and Measures division inspectors and law enforcement led a four-day sweep of more than 4,800 retail motor fuel dispensers at 535 gas stations in East Baton Rouge, Jefferson and St. Tammany parishes.
The skimmer was found in an outlying area of St. Tammany Parish.
LDAF inspectors have confiscated 48 skimming devices throughout the state over the past two years.
