They probably found the skimmers when one of the POS card readers that had one installed failed and the tech from the outside contractor that actually does the install/maintenance of the POS system spotted it.

I've worked for a company providing POS systems for restaurants/grocery stores and 99% of the people using them wouldn't know a mag reader from a keypad.
