The skimming device looks identical to the card reader on the ATM at the bank and was attached with a sticky substance, police said.

At this time it is unknown if the device was storing the debit card numbers or if it was transmitting the debit card numbers to a nearby suspect with a computer.

The device appears to have been molded to match the card readers on ATMs at any US Bank.

Police are in the process of getting video of a possible suspect.

Any department having a similar incident are advised to contact detective Paret at (847) 247-4883 or
