In the wake of increased identity theft and mail theft, law enforcement officials took the opportunity to re-emphasize to the community the importance of shredding financial accounts before discarding them and checking one's mailbox regularly. During the public safety update at last Monday's La Cañada Flintridge City Council meeting, Captain Tim Peters from the Crescenta Valley Sheriff's station informed the council of another stolen recycling bin, a concern because thieves regularly scour the bins for sensitive documents.

Every week Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station takes reports from victims of identity theft. It is a growing crime statistic with perpetrators that work either in groups or as individuals. Victims sometimes do not realize they have been victimized until they attempt to get a loan or are denied for a credit card because of their now damaged financial history. That is why law enforcement officials from the CV Sheriff's department and the U.S. Secret Service warn citizens to be alert and understand that anyone can become a victim of identity theft.
