Three Florida men arrested for placing credit card skimming devices on gas pumps

 Kenner - On Friday, December 1, 2017, the Kenner Police Department responded to the Discount Zone, located at 4045 Williams Boulevard, Kenner, to investigate a complaint of credit card skimmers being placed on two gas pumps.

 It was there Kenner Police learned that three suspects took part in placing two credit card skimming devices within two gas pumps at the location, which the manager removed.  One suspect had entered the store to create distraction, the second blocked the view of the gas pump, while the third connected the credit card skimming devices inside the gas pumps.  The store clerk was able to provide relevant information, which led to the Kenner Police Department locating a suspect vehicle, on Monday, December 4, 2017, which was stopped in the 1000 block of Airline Drive, in Kenner.  Arrested are:

 

 Alfredo Gouirrie-Blanco, 45, Sandy Alvarez, 34, and Yunior Rodriguez, 35.  All three claims to reside in Miami, Florida, and have been charged with violating the anti-skimming act.   It should be noted at the time of arrest, Blanco was found to be in possession of a key that opened gas pumps. 

 

 At the time of this press release, Blanco, Alvarez, and Rodriguez remain in custody, no bond has been set. 

 

  Kenner Police Chief Michael J. Glaser urges anyone with information concerning these three suspects to call Kenner Police Detective Brad Ricke at (504) 712-2214, or Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
