CLAREMONT — Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying two men who are believed to have stolen money from several Claremont-area residents after attaching a “skimming” device to an ATM over Veterans Day weekend.

The illegal device, which captures private account information when customers use their bank cards at an ATM, was affixed to one of the ATMs at the Claremont Savings Bank on Broad Street, police said. Police released photographs of two men they said were “involved in the illegal use of a skimming device” and said “numerous individuals” had reported unusual activity with their accounts.

The men are believed to have made “several fraudulent withdrawals from another ATM” with account information they obtained from the skimmer, police said.

Anyone with information was asked to call the Claremont police detective division at 603-542-7010, or to report anonymously to the tip line at 603-542-7026 ext. 1234.
