Press Release

Hickory Police are investigating an incident that occurred week before last--with a cautionary note that the culprits may very well try other locations around the area.

On May 18th a white female and a white male fraudulently accessed funds from three Wells Fargo ATMs located in Hickory. The same pair are also suspected of fraudulently obtaining funds from ATMs in the Asheville area.

The suspects are possibly using “skimmers” placed at certain ATMs, obtaining the victim’s information and accessing funds with the victim's stolen debit/credit card information.

The white female appears to wear several wigs of varying length and colors, a black/white athletic jacket and dark color hat. The duo may be driving a dark gray or smoke colored Ford pickup truck.

Hickory Police have taken multiple reports in reference to this investigation.  Anyone with information about these incidents is asked to contact Investigator A. Horton at 828-261-2686 or the communications center at 828-328-5551.
