Shred-a-Thon in Orange Park to Prevent Identity Theft

FL -- The Orange Park Kennel Club was the setting for a Shred-a-Thon to protect from identity theft.

Around 9 this morning, Sheriff Rick Beseler, Public Defender Matt Shirk and Crime Stoppers Representative Wylie Hodges hosted the Shred-a-Thon, which ended with five truckloads of shredded documents that weighed 14 tons.

Also on hand: McGruff the Crime Dog.

Residents also got the chance to speak with community leaders and local law enforcement about how their community could help in the fight against identity theft.
