Hamilton police credit an alert worker for foiling a potential ATM scam at the TD-Canada Trust bank on Golf Links Road on the weekend.

Sergeant Terri-Lynn Collings said police were called at about 1 p.m. on Sunday after the employee, who was doing work inside the closed bank, saw two men attaching what turned out to be a scanning device to an automatic teller machine.

Officers arrived as the suspects were leaving and arrested them. Both men, aged 19 and 23, are from Scarborough. Collings said police continue their investigation and the suspects were being held pending charges related to the scanning device, used to steal personal identification numbers to access bank accounts.
