CENTERVILLE, Ohio (WDTN) – Identity theft is on the rise. The Better Business Bureau says identity thieves stole $16 billion from consumers in 2014.

One way to protect yourself is to shred documents containing personal information. That’s why the BBB is holding a free shredding event on Saturday, October 17 at Routsong Funeral Home in Centerville.

Individuals can bring up to five boxes at a time.

BBB President and CEO John North joined Katie Ussin on Five on 2 to talk about what you should shred and what you should keep. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
