Police arrest men suspected of tampering with credit, debit machines

  • Print

Winnipeg police have arrested four Ontario residents suspected of tampering with point-of-sale terminal pin pads that would enable them to collect debt and credit card data as well as PIN numbers.

Anyone who believes they might have been victimized in a similar fashion is asked to contact their financial institution.

The arrests followed an investigation by the Winnipeg Police Service’s Commercial Crime Unit, which was able to identify two businesses that had their point of sale terminals compromised.

The four men now being detained at the Provincial Remand Centre are Jatin Agnihotri, 20, of Brampton, Adrian Adam Peron, 26, of Etobicoke, Prash Segatheesan, 24, of Mississauga and Rashma Kaur Sidhu, 20, of Mississauga.

Additional information on how to protect yourself against debit and credit card fraud is available on the Winnipeg Police Service website at http://www.winnipeg.ca/police/tblofcontents/crimeprevention.stm
