Scanning device found on gas pump

An employee of 7-Eleven at 7830 Pine Ave. in Chino located a scanning device on the gas pump point of sale terminals Jan. 29. After reviewing security footage, the employees were not able to identify a suspect, according to the Chino Police Department.

Chino police were called at 6 p.m. to the gas station to take a report.

“There are no further leads at this time,” Sgt. Nancy Franklin said.

Scanning devices are used to record ATM or credit card information from its strip. That information is then added to fraudulent cards.

Student cited for marijuana 

Police in Chino cited a Buena Vista High student for possession of marijuana on school grounds Jan. 29, according to the Chino Police Department.

“The student admitted to smoking marijuana,” Sgt. Nancy Franklin said. “The Chino Valley Fire Department responded to evaluate the student as a precaution.”

The student, who was not identified because of his age, was issued an infraction citation and released to the school’s principal, Sgt. Franklin said.
