Police warn of "Card Skimmers"

BARBOURVILLE, Ky. (WYMT) - Officials with the Barbourville Police Department say a new type of identity theft may have made its way into eastern Kentucky.

The times-tribune reports that there have been recent reports of card skimmers at gas stations and banks in our region.
