Mesa police are asking for the public's help in identifying a person of interest in a gas pump skimmer case. 

Police say on August 20 the man seen in surveillance footage may have been involved in trying to install a skimmer on the gas pumps with two other men at the Quik Trip near University and Country Club drives. 

The men reportedly caused all the pumps to shut down but were not able to gain access to any of them. 

The person of interest is described as 30 to 35 years old, 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighing 210 pounds. 

He was last seen wearing a gray shirt and blue jean shorts.

Police say there are two vehicles possibly involved, a red Honda Accord and a silver Toyota 4-Runner. 

If you have any information on the identity of this man or this incident, you are asked to call Mesa police at 480-644-2211.
