When ABC 13 showed Madison Heights resident Donald McDaniel a copy of a court document with his name on it, he recognized it immediately.
It had his contact information and Social Security number, and it was found with several other records in a Food Lion parking lot near the Amherst County District Court.
"It's crazy. It really is. I don't know how it got out there," he said. "That's my personal information. Anybody can come in here and be me."
Amherst resident Ida Christian found the court documents, which involved different people and cases and included a criminal case summons, subpoena for witnesses and a driver's license suspension notice.
"I got out the car and I found one right here," Christian said, pointing down to where she first saw the first one blowing around the lot. "I picked it up, then I walked a little ways up, pick up another one, then on the way out, I was driving out, I seen two more."
She said the paper trail led to the dumpster behind the Amherst County Sheriff's Office and Amherst General District Court, which are located next to the store.
