AUSTIN (KJCE) - Two more credit card skimmers have been discovered, this time at a gas station in north Austin.

Officials found the skimmers Thursday at a Valero station at the corner of St. Johns Avenue and the southbound Interstate 35 frontage road. The investigation came on the heels of a complaint filed with the Texas Department of Agriculture.

Following the discovery, Austin Police were dispatched to remove the devices and continue any potential investigation.
