WCPO hosted the Crime Stoppers shred event sponsored by Furniture Fair at select locations on Saturday, Sept. 13 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
An easy solution to keep private information out of the hands of thieves, with services provided by the company Shred-It., also served as a way for Tri-State residents to support Crime Stoppers.
"Don't Waste Your Money's" John Matarese was on-hand from 8-10 a.m. at the Fairfield Furniture Fair location.
Other Furniture Fair locations involved in the shredding included Cold Spring, Eastgate, and Northgate. Drop offs for surplus prescription drugs were also accepted during the event.
