Hotels urged to use caution when disposing of sensitive documents
Austin police are urging hotels and motels to shred or properly dispose of trash containing customers’ personal information after they said a man was seen searching through Dumpsters at those businesses
Officials said Wednesday that Dustin Jackson, 33, was seen going through hotel Dumpsters and that he has been arrested twice for using stolen ID at banks in the area. Police would not comment further on the investigation but alerted hotels to call police if they had observed anyone going through their Dumpsters.
According to arrest affidavits, Jackson was arrested this month for trying to cash forged checks after breaking into a car and a storage unit. He also was arrested in November after police said he tried to make a bank deposit while getting cash back using a stolen check on an account that was closed, an arrest affidavit said.
Jackson was in the Travis County Jail on Wednesday with bail set at $32,000.
