A debit card fraud investigation tied to Aldi stores is growing. Last week, hundreds of victims in suburban Wheeling and Buffalo Grove came forward, but Thursday, it appeared there were dozens of cases in St. Charles. Police tell ABC7 they've taken reports from 30 customers who say their cards were compromised while shopping at Aldi. Someone stole their information and used it at ATMs in southern California to take money from their bank accounts.

Aldi officials did not comment on these latest cases, but last week the company said it was working closely with law enforcement to assist in the ongoing investigation.
