Man arrested for ATM skimming

WYOMING, Mich. (WZZM) - Police are looking for a second suspect who's been stealing bank account information from ATMs in Wyoming and Grandville.

Dontae Collins, 22, of Illinois is already facing charges for using a device to copy personal information from Fifth Third Bank ATMs. It's called "skimming" and all it takes is one swipe of your card.

13 is on your side to help protect your money.

  • When using an ATM, cover the number pad, even if no one is around
  • Scammers can install small cameras that catch your card's numbers.
  • Keep a close eye on all of your bank statements for any unusual purchases.
  • Always be aware of your surroundings.

A red flag your account's been skimmed-- if you put your card in the machine and it's delayed or won't come out after a transaction.

Funeral held for Navy SEAL killed in Afghanistan

GRANDVILLE, Mich. (AP) -- Family and friends have gathered in western Michigan to pay their respects to a U.S. Navy SEAL who was killed in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan.

Gov. Rick Snyder ordered U.S. flags lowered statewide Thursday in honor of 27-year-old Petty Officer David J. Warsen of Kentwood.

The flag-lowering came on the day of Warsen's funeral at Mars Hill Bible Church in Grandville, near Grand Rapids. Burial was at Blain Cemetery in Kent County's Gaines Township.

His family says in a statement that Warsen "was truly devoted to his teammates and country."

Warsen died Aug. 16 along with six other Americans and four Afghans when a Black Hawk helicopter crashed northeast of Kandahar.

Warsen was a special warfare operator based in California. He was an East Kentwood High School graduate.
