I am about 95% certain that these are the same guys that were caught about a year ago in Kansas. They were caught red handed installing skimmers on a dispenser. Arrested, but never charged with anything and eventually released. They were not US Citizens and may have been deported to Cuban (I never heard back on that detail).
