WHEELING, W.Va. (AP) - Federal authorities have charged five people from south Florida with fraud, alleging they used skimming devices to steal credit or debit card account information from gas pumps in West Virginia since late August.

According to the indictment, they possessed 15 skimming devices and used them in Monongalia County and elsewhere, using the information to make cash withdrawals and purchases in the region where they got the information.

Prosecutors say four are scheduled to appear in court next week, and a warrant has been issued for the fifth person.
