MIAMI - A man wanted by the FBI may have fled to South Florida.

Authorities say Osvaldo Villanueva is wanted on suspicion of operating a gas pump skimming scheme in Northern Virginia. 

The alleged crimes, which involved installing Bluetooth-enabled skimming devices on the inside of fuel pumps, took place between March and September of 2017. 

A federal arrest warrant was issued for Villanueva earlier this year.  

According to the FBI, Villanueva has ties to the Miami and Denver areas.
