STATEWIDE -- Officials have sent a warning to travel plazas along the New York State Thruway.

A skimming device was found on a fuel pump at the Sunoco in the Sloatsburg Travel Plaza. It's located on the northbound side between exits 15A and 16.

It was located on February 11, and officials say it was only there for a short period of time. However, they are not sure how much information was actually stolen.
