Debit Terminals Stolen at Tim’s Drive-thrus


TORONTO — Two men in their 20s went on a PIN-pad-terminal-stealing spree at nine Tim Horton’s drive-thru restaurants in Toronto this past weekend before they were caught and arrested.

“Once the debit-card machine was handed to the customer, they would cut the cord of it and drive away with the PIN pad,” said Det. Shawn Mahoney as quoted by CBC News.

Police speculate thieves stole the terminals with the intention of changing them to obtain customers’ debit-card numbers and PINs as they could be reinstalled at retail locations to capture bank-account information.

Two men are facing charges.
