Shredded Police Docs Found in NYC Thanksgiving Parade Confetti

Several attendees at Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade allegedly found shredded confetti strips made from confidential documents belonging to New York City’s Nassau County Police Department, according to the local TV station WPIX. Ethan Finklestein, a Tuft University freshman and one of the several parade-goers who noticed, says that he found legible imprints of phone numbers, addresses, social security numbers and police incident reports on the confetti strips, including an arrest log that read “At 4:30 A.M. a pipe bomb was thrown at a house in the Kings Grant’ area.” The Nassau County officials told the station that they will be launching an investigation and reviewing the department’s procedures for the disposal of sensitive documents.
