Personal info found outside DPS building

Hundreds of documents containing names, birth dates, driver’s license numbers and some Social Security numbers were found Wednesday littering the driveway of Galveston’s vacant Department of Public Safety office.

Until contacted by The Daily News, the state agency was unaware of the office cleaning mishap, which occurred sometime after Hurricane Ike’s Sept. 13 landfall flooded the building at 6812 Broadway.

How long the dozen or so picked-through and torn trash bags, office accessories and a Target shopping cart have been blighting the building is unknown.
