Junkyards become goldmine for ID theft

San Antonio – Junkyards aren’t just a place where people can pick up spare parts. Thieves are also rummaging through junked vehicles to try and steal someone’s identity.

“Do you know a Karlis Anthony?” Fox San Antonio’s Ryan Wolf asked a woman outside a West Side area home.

“Yes,” Tremeka Boone responded. That’s my son-in-law.”

“Well, look what he left behind in a car,” Wolf said while he pointed to paperwork with Anthony’s personal information on it.

Fox San Antonio picked a salvage yard at random after the station received a tip about people leaving personal documents in junked vehicles. Wolf wanted to see what would turn up on a search of vehicles.
