Two men have been arrested in connection with an incident where a skimming device was fitted to a cash point in Derby.

At around 11.30am yesterday (Tuesday, November 5), staff at the Co-op petrol station, in Duffield Road, called police to report a suspicious device on the cash machine.

Officers attended and found it had been fitted with a card skimming device. Police had intelligence that men in a Renault had been seen acting suspiciously in Derby and a car matching that description was seen driving along the A38 in south Derbyshire at around 12.20pm.

Police stopped the car near the Markeaton Island and searched it, finding a large amount of cash inside. Two men, aged 24 and 25, were arrested and the car was seized.

The men remain in custody and are being questioned. Anyone with information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
