BENNINGTON, Vt. — Skimming devices have been found at two gas stations in the Vermont town of Bennington.

The Bennington Banner reports (http://bit.ly/2eZRl2c ) Martin’s Mini-Mart and Midway’s Tenneybrook Market are warning customers after six card skimmers were found at the stations. The gas stations’ parent companies say the electronic devices have been removed.

Two skimmers were found at Martin’s Mini-Mart on Aug. 28. Four skimmers were installed at Midway’s Tenneybrook Market on Aug. 24 and removed the next day.
