Police are seeking the public’s assistance in finding a woman who they say drove up to an ATM and stole $500 from someone else’s account 10 weeks ago.

The woman, who was wearing sunglasses and was inside a pickup truck, drove up to an ATM July 30 at a branch of Bank of America at 5114 S. Power Road, near the corner of Warner Road, and stole the funds.

The woman is suspected to be part of a larger “card skimming” operation in which thieves target cash machines by using magnetic strips to retrieve data stored on computers inside the machine, with the intention of later using the data to make withdraws for themselves.

The woman may have been driving a Toyota Tacoma, police said.

If anyone has any information or believes they have seen any suspicious activity at ATMs, they can call police at (480) 503-6500.
