Residents line up to protect themselves from identity theft

(Clayton, NJ)- Over 600 cars pulled up throughout the day at Gloucester County's 12th Annual Big Shredding Event to dispose of their personal paperwork to protect themselves from identity theft.

Freeholder Lyman Barnes said, "Paying attention to how one handles their personal information like old bank statements, and credit card bills, one can minimize the risk of becoming a victim of identity theft."
