OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) -- Detectives noticed something about all the Washington State Employees Credit Union members in Olympia who were reporting fraudulent use of their credit cards.

Everyone had used their cards at a fast-food restaurant in downtown Olympia.

Police said Thursday that investigators found a 17-year-old employee was using a skimming device to get the numbers, and then using them to buy electronics the teen sold on Craigslist.

Skimming machines and merchandise bought with fraudulent credit card numbers were found in a search of the suspect's home.

The teen was booked on identity theft and forgery charges.
