NATIONAL CITY, Calif. (AP) — ACORN says a man who took thousands of documents from a trash bin outside its San Diego County office broke the law and is demanding he return them.
Amy Schur, who heads California's ACORN operations, said Tuesday her group filed a crime report with police in National City, which has an anti-scavenging law. Schur has also asked the county district attorney's office to help get back the papers, which were taken from a caged trash area behind the National City office last month.
Former state Assembly candidate Derrick Roach says he took an estimated 20,000 papers, including some showing employee Social Security and driver's license numbers that should have been shredded. Roach questioned why the documents were tossed only days before state investigators went to the office as part of a probe of ACORN.
