Christine Kim reports:

Just a simple swipe can lead to a ripple of consequences.

Up to 1,000 Anchorage residents may be affected by a credit card crime.

Police say it may have been a computer hack that stole the information about credit and debit card holders.

Detectives are still trying to figure out who was behind the hacking, but they say they’re using what they have to put the puzzle pieces together.

Police are not releasing the name and type of business.
