Skimmer used in Montgomery County ATM thefts

Here's another example of skimmers used in an ATM theft. 

Technology has a way of making things so impersonal.

Police say two men in Montgomery County didn't commit armed robbery or even mug a late night walker but instead used a basic looking piece of plastic to rob dozens from afar.

The device is called a skimmer. It comes in a variation of shapes and sizes and fits perfectly over the card slot of an ATM machine. The problem is that it's nearly impossible to detect.
