Reports of a man and woman rifling through and stealing garbage from homes while it waits for the waste truck to arrive are again causing authorities in Gaines Township to caution residents to protect your identity by shredding any trash that may contain personal information.
A warning posted on the Gaines Township Fire Department Facebook page on Friday July 5th reads:
"On 7-4-2019 just before the hours of darkness, the Gaines Twp Police received a call about a Navy Blue early 2000 Chevrolet Monte Carlo, with a white male driver and a white female passenger, stealing garbage bags, from the garbage put out to the road in the 9000 block of Seymour Rd.
It is thought they are taking it to obtain personal information.
Please shred all your personal information before placing it in the garbage."
