If you made a purchase at Fuzzy’s Taco Shop in Abilene in the past few weeks, you may want to check your bank statements – Abilene police say more than 50 people had their credit card information stolen from the restaurant.

According to an incident report filed Wednesday, the identity thefts may have gone back as far as July 1. The report doesn’t say how the information was obtained.

Police say victims are still being identified, but the cards were reportedly used all across Texas. The total amount of money lost has yet to be determined.

KTXS spoke to a manager at Fuzzy’s, who said the restaurant worked to secure the data breach immediately when it was discovered. She said they have taken extra measures to ensure that credit card information is currently safe.

The incident report states the owner “removed the point of compromise.” It is unknown if a credit card skimmer was used.

No suspects have been identified at this time.

If you see any unauthorized charges on your account, it is recommended to contact Abilene police in addition to your bank.

Last September, two men were arrested for stealing credit and debit card information from customers at Sonic Drive-in and Red Robin in Abilene.
