    Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputies seized the devices Aug. 8 from two separate gas pumps.

    Temple Station detectives are asking citizens to call the Sheriff's Department at 626-285-7171 to report any suspicious subjects, who do not appear to be gas station employees, tampering with the gas pumps at any gas station.
