MARION, Ind. – Investigators in Grant County need help cracking a series of credit card skimming cases.

Multiple agencies are investigating the crimes, which have affected nearly 50 people since June 1. In each case, victims reported unauthorized purchases at Walmart stores across the state, including Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, Anderson and Greenwood. The victims still had their credit/debit cards in their possession, leading police to believe their card information may have been compromised.
