The Platte County Sheriff's Office is asking the public to assist in identifying the three male suspects in this video. On January 8, 2019 the three suspects entered a convenience store located in southern Platte County and placed a skimming device on the stores card reader located on the cashiers counter. Parkville Police Department and Platte County detectives received numerous reports from individuals of fraudulent transactions on either their credit cards or bank cards.

In a collaborative effort between the Parkville Police Department and the Platte County Sheriff's Office the fraudulent charges were traced back to the southern Platte County convenience store.
