MIAMI BEACH (CBSMiami) – Miami Beach police have released surveillance video of two men who were caught on camera placing a card skimmer over a credit/debit scanner at a gas station.

It happened Wednesday, around 9:30 p.m., at Chevron at 1453 Alton Road.

On the video, one of the men distracts the clerk while the other places the skimmer over the payment keypad located near the register. It took less than three seconds to put it in place.
