There are at least 283 reported cases of credit and debit card fraud, all originating from a now-closed EVG gas station in Sierra Madre, says Arcadia Patch. Most claims come from patrons of the station, are Sierra Madre residents, and involve a single fraudulent charge of less than $200. The investigation is ongoing, and the Sierra Madre Police urge locals to check their bank statements for fraudulent charges and to file a report.
