ASPEN, Colo. (AP) Aspen police are warning the public after they found a credit card skimmer and a small camera at a downtown ATM machine.

Police said in a statement Monday it is unknown how long the skimmer has been in place. They say security videos will be reviewed to identify potential suspects.

Aspen attracts celebrities and the wealthy for its skiing and all around ambiance from around the U.S. and the world.

Authorities are encouraging people to monitor their bank accounts closely if they used their debit card at a Wells Fargo ATM in Aspen. They say the best option is to replace the card and get a new PIN number.

Bank officials did not return a phone call seeking comment.
