State officials found several credit card skimmers Tuesday at a gas station near Round Rock.

The Texas Department of Agriculture found skimming devices on four gas station pumps at the Brushy Creek Market, 17251 Great Oaks Drive, just west of Round Rock.

Law enforcement have since removed the devices.

Local police have been warning people through social media to be wary of credit card skimmers as more are found installed on gas pumps in the Central Texas area. In May, the Round Rock Police Department offered tips to look out for skimmers.
