At this time, no suspects have been identified and the investigation is continuing.
The Frederick Police Department and the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office are conducting an investigation into the tampering of an Automated Teller Machine. In April an ATM in the City of Frederick was rigged with a device used to read the magnetic strips of credit/debit cards. The device recorded the credit card numbers of customers using the ATM. It is also believed a video recording device was placed near the ATM to capture customer PIN numbers being entered into the machine. The information was then used to make fraudulent credit cards that were used to withdrawal money from various locations in Maryland and surrounding states. This type of fraud has been identified nationwide and is not unique to this area.
Several victims have been identified in the City of Frederick and Frederick County. It is believed additional cards may have been compromised. If an individual suspects their card may have been compromised, they are encouraged to first contact their local bank branch. If it is then determined that a credit/debit card has been compromised, residents of the City of Frederick are being directed to contact Detective William Forder of the Frederick Police Department at 301-600-1220. Victims of this fraud residing in Frederick County are asked to contact Detective Willie Ollie of the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office at 301-600-3605.
Police are advising residents who use ATM devices to be alert to anything suspicious, such as items attached to the ATM, brochure containers with holes directed toward the keypad, or anything that appears to be out of place or unusual. Report suspicious activity to your local police agency.
This is an ongoing investigation. As such, the bank name and location of the compromised ATM is not being released at this time.

The Frederick Police Department announced today they are joining with other federal, state and local highway safety and law enforcement officials across the nation to remind those who plan on using alcohol during The Memorial Day Weekend this year to act responsibly by designating sober drivers before parties begin. The Frederick Police Department will have saturation patrols during the Memorial Day weekend in an effort to prevent and reduce traffic accidents. We will also conduct DUI checkpoints and support any DUI Check Points conducted by the Frederick County Highway Safety Task Force under Checkpoint Strike force.
Memorial Day weekend is a time to travel, conduct Memorial ceremonies and has also become a time for family cookouts and parties. We ask that everyone use common sense this year and designate their sober driver in advance – before the festivities even begin.
Traffic accidents can happen anytime the volume of traffic increases and people are frustrated by delays. The ways to avoid an accident are listed below:
· Obey all traffic signs, signals, and speed limits
· Plan plenty of time for travel so you are not rushed
· If traveling long distances, get plenty of rest prior to starting your trip
· Require all passengers to buckle their seatbelts
· Use rest stops and change drivers to avoid fatigue
Kim C. Dine, Chief of Police, Frederick Police Department said, “Our officers will
be out there saving lives and reducing traffic accidents by enforcing traffic safety laws. Our proactive approach includes efforts at educating the public and apprising our citizens ahead of time to improve voluntary compliance. Enlightened communication with our citizens is one of the best ways to improve safety and the quality of life in our City. We want our citizens to know we will be out there protecting them and saving lives."
Whether you are just meeting a few friends after work at the corner pub or attending a party, if you plan on using alcohol, do not drive – and never let your friends drive if you think they are impaired.
Designating a sober driver before the local celebration begins and making sure friends don’t drive drunk are just two simple steps to help avoid a tragic crash or an arrest for impaired driving.
Designating a sober driver and not letting friends drive while impaired are just two of several simple steps to help avoid a tragic crash or an arrest for impaired driving. Other tips include:
- Avoid drinking too much alcohol too fast.
- Pace yourself—eat enough food, take breaks and alternate with non-alcoholic drinks.
- Designate a sober driver before the party and give that person your car keys.
- If you don’t have a designated driver, ask a sober friend for a ride home; call a cab, friend or family member to come and get you; or just stay where you are and sleep it off.
- Never let a friend leave your sight if you think they are about to drive while impaired. Remember, Friends Don’t Let Friends Drive Drunk.
- Always buckle up – it’s still your best defense against other impaired drivers.
- Serve lots of food – particularly high-protein dishes;
- Be sure to include lots of non-alcoholic beverages, desserts and coffee;
- Be sure all of your guests designate their drivers in advance;
- Help arrange ride-sharing with sober drivers; and
- Keep the numbers for local cab companies handy, and take keys away from anyone who is thinking of driving while impaired.
Don’t risk arrest or an accident that can damper all future celebrations for your families or friends. Designate your sober driver before the party begins.
