LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man who planted skimmers at a half-dozen gas stations in the area is going to prison -- and he was ordered to return more than $100,000 to his victims.

Misael Fernandez Campos was sentenced to four-and-a-half years in prison this week.

Federal authorities found devices at Campos' home back in 2015. The FBI also discovered the 26-year-old sent more than 7,000 credit card numbers through email. 

Campos later pleaded guilty to wire fraud, possessing skimming device making equipment, possessing 15 or more counterfeit access devices, and aggravated identity theft.  

So far, federal and local authorities have found 50 active skimmers, resulting in $3.5 million stolen.

In addition to his prison sentence, Campos has been ordered to pay $100,378.93 in restitution to 65 victims.
