Secret Service takes over fraud case

The U.S. Secret Service is investigating a case involving credit card information stolen from people who used a car wash in Franklin.

The thefts involve a possible case of skimming devices being placed on card scanners, allowing credit or debit card information to be stolen.

The fraud was happening around the country at many locations, so the Secret Service took over the investigation, said Lt. Pete Ketchum, the Franklin Police Department officer assigned to the local case.
