An employee was arrested for using a skimming device to collect customer credit card information.  At least 16 people were affected, but more are expected to come forward.  The dishonest employee was underage at the time of the crimes and was held on suspicion of identity theft and forgery.  Customers who used cards at the McDonald's drive through between October 10 and November 9 of 2011 may have been affected.  Investigators became aware of the breach when members of the Washington State Employees Credit Union began filing claims for fraudulent use of their credit cards.
