LAWRENCE (CBS) – Identity thieves could have hit the jackpot in Lawrence.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Bernice Corpuz reports

Investigators want to know why so much trash with personal information has been dumped off South Union Street.

“There’s an alley way in the city, one strewn with car parts, with municipal trash, tires, mattresses and then, what was most shocking of all, was all of the personal documents, personal files, business files,” city councilor Marc Laplante told WBZ NewsRadio 1030 Thursday.

Blank checks, payroll statements, and 401k information were also found in the mess.

Laplante said he picked up a medical file that contained documents issued by a training school.

Some of the trash has been traced to an asbestos removal service that has apparently closed.

Laplante said if they don’t catch who’s responsible for the dumping, the city will have to pay for the cleanup.

    I grew up in Lawrence in the 60’s and it’s NOTHING like how it was back then. It’s deteriorated so, so much it’s actually pathetic. The entire downtown with metal gates on all store doors and windows? That is, the ones with businesses still in those stores. Somebody needs to get in there with some gumption and stop catering to everyone and just plain snap Lawrence out of it!

    Lawrence is a great place. The best way to see it is at 70mph in a locked car on 495 – don’t slow down and definetly do not stop.

    I once worked in Lawrence and it wasn’t that bad a place but it appears that things have definately changed. How can people get away with dumping all of this and have nobody see who is doing it. Put up a camera or two and politely ask the police to ……….ahhh……….do their job.
