Casey's General Stores said Wednesday it has found skimming devices at six of its convenience stores in Nebraska and one in Iowa.

The Ankeny, Iowa-based chain said it found skimmers at stations in Waverly, York, Wood River, Grand Island, Kearney and Omaha earlier this month. The chain also said a device was found at a store in Davenport, Iowa. The company said it checked all of its nearly 1,900 stores and found no other devices.

According to the company, anyone who used a credit or debit card at the Nebraska locations between Oct. 2 and Oct. 10 or at the Iowa location between Oct. 15 and 21 could have been affected.

Skimming devices fit over credit and debit card readers and copy the information stored on the cards' magnetic strips.

Last month, five teenagers from California were arrested after such devices were found at three Pinnacle Bank locations in Lincoln. Two face charges in adult court.
