KENNER, LA (WVUE) -

Kenner police arrested three Florida men after discovering a skimming device on two gas pumps at a convenience store.

On Friday, officers responded to the Discount Zone, located at 4045 Williams Boulevard, Kenner, to investigate a complaint of credit card skimmers being placed on two gas pumps.

Three suspects allegedly took part in placing two credit card skimming devices within two gas pumps at the location, which the manager removed. 

One suspect had entered the store to create a distraction, the second blocked the view of the gas pump, while the third connected the credit card skimming devices inside the gas pumps, police said. 

The store clerk was able to provide information which led to officers locating a suspect vehicle on Monday in the 1000 block of Airline Dr.

Officers arrested Alfredo Gouirrie-Blanco, 45, Sandy Alvarez, 34, and Yunior Rodriguez, 35.  All three said they reside in Miami, FL and have been charged with violating the anti-skimming act.  

Investigators said Blanco was found to be in possession of a key that opened gas pumps. 

Blanco, Alvarez, and Rodriguez remain in custody, no bond has been set.

 Kenner Police Chief Michael J. Glaser urges anyone with information concerning these three suspects to call Kenner Police Detective Brad Ricke at (504) 712-2214, or Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.

    I usually leave a Saints game with an overall theme or feeling about what I just observed on the field. It typically jumps out at me right away and this column is written. But after Sunday I was left with kind of a blah emotion. Their effort against the Jets was kind of weird. It certainly wasn’t an overly impressive victory to celebrate, but nonetheless, a win in the NFL by double digits is nothing they have to apologize for. Dodging a bullet may be the more accurate descript...

    Juan's World: Saints ground Jets, look to Falcons rematch

    Welcome in to Juan's World and as you know, this blog that I do is strictly an opinion piece with a few facts sprinkled in here and there. So, with that in mind, I'm under the opinion that the Saints should've been 'expected' to look past the Jets to next weeks rematch with the Falcons. How could they not look ahead to Atlanta coming to the dome next Sunday. And before you go all 'One Game at a Time' on me, think for a second. You're supposed to beat the Jets, who came in 5-8 and wi...
