A woman in Central Indiana purchases someone’s personal paperwork at a Goodwill Outlet store. She found everything from bank statements to social security numbers then tipped off the story to a local news station, and it later turned into a full-blown investigation of Goodwill Industries in the area. Some of the social security numbers found were those of local police officers and policy changes are on the way for the charity organization. All personal items purchased at Goodwill during the investigation have been returned to their owners or destroyed.
