Veyo, Utah – On Wednesday, in Washington County, police have arrested two suspects in connection with a credit card skimmer scheme.

The suspects were identified as 35-year-old Kayli Nicole Fontana and 32-year-old Luis Miguel Rodriguez.

At first, authorities were alerted the employee by a gas station employee who told deputies an electronic skimming device was found installed on a gas pump about a week earlier. The device is used to collect digital financial information when someone swipes a card to pay.

After the employee provided photos showing a male suspect tampering with the gas pump in question, authorities were able to locate the suspect’s described vehicle on Gunlock Road near mile marker 11.

While detaining the two suspects, troopers searched their vehicle and discovered glass pipes with suspicious residue and liquids, along with a bag of methamphetamine that dropped down from the car’s sun visor. The male suspect matched all the photos provided by the victim and was taken into custody. The female suspect has been arrested on four charges including use or possession of drug paraphernalia, open container of drinking alcohol in a vehicle, criminal conspiracy, and possession of a controlled substance.

The male suspect has been arrested on six charges including possession of a forgery or writing device, criminal conspiracy, criminal mischief, and more.

Both suspects have been booked at the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.
