Alexandria City documents that included limited taxpayer information were briefly compromised on Thursday when they fell from a city truck, according to a release from the city.
The documents were scheduled to be transported to an incinerator when they fell from a truck on Van Dorn Street between Holmes Run Parkway and Sanger Avenue. The documents fell to the ground and were scattered on the street and nearby property.
City crews immediately recovered and secured the documents.
“It is believed that no personal information has been compromised,” reads the statement from the city.
The city suggests residents monitor their financial transactions as normal. Any unusual or suspicious activity should be reported immediately to appropriate financial institutions and to the city’s Department of Finance.
