Original story: 

Thumbing through a police report on a Monday morning marks a sour start to the week for Charles McCloud.

"I want to know where my money went," McCloud says before shuffling papers outside the Little Rock Police Department.

McCloud is on the hunt for whoever might have compromised his wife's debit card.

Two charges totaling $800  were mysteriously withdrawn from an unfamiliar ATM downtown this weekend.

So, the McClouds re-traced their steps with that card in tow.

"The only time we used it in the last two months was to withdraw cash at an ATM out near Bass Pro Shop," McCloud says.

After seeing those charges, the McCloud family wanted to investigate on their own, so they came back to the ATM near Bass Pro.

They were suspicious of a skimmer, so they pulled on it a little bit, and it fell down.

"The whole top part of ATM slid all the way out," McCloud says.

The exposed machine revealed more evidence of a possible skimmer. The McClouds called police.

"They seemed a little puzzled why we were out there at 9 o'clock at night with an ATM that was in pieces," McCloud says.

The ATM sits at a First Security Bank location; a spot also home to suspicion from Carol Smith just weeks ago.

"I had a friend who was going to use it," Smith says.

"She just had a real bad feeling and she just saw a couple in a car, and they were watching her real close."

The situation illustrates a trick-or-transaction story days before Halloween that's causing a scare.

"How many other people were hit?" McCloud says.

"I'm certain, if we were the first person to find it unlocked, they've skimmed hundreds of cards at this point."

First Security Bank reached out to us and stated that a skimmer was not found, but did say it appeared something happened to that ATM in particular. First Security Bank confirmed that an investigation was ongoing. No foreign devices were discovered during the initial investigation.
