People worried about identity theft had a chance Saturday to ''shred it and forget it.''

Trucks with industrial strength shredders were parked outside the United Center Saturday. Anyone could come by and drop off up to 10 boxes of documents to be destroyed.

Organizers say 8 million Americans fall victim to identity theft each year. This was one way for people to protect themselves.
