MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

A free event to help protect you from identity theft is happening today in Montgomery. The city of Montgomery, max credit union, and AARP of Alabama are teaming up to offer free shredding of your personal documents.

Jessica Pigg, a representative from Max will join us from Garrett Coliseum where the shredding trucks are getting ready to move in. Coming up on Today in Alabama Jessica will tell us everything you need to know before you bring your documents and what will happen to them once they're shredded.

ALSO ON TODAY IN ALABAMA:

Drivers in east Montgomery were met with frustration and confusion as they tried to navigate Chantilly parkway Thursday. A sea of orange reflective barrels are throwing drivers for a loop. Reporter Kacey Drescher has the latest on the construction and how long officials say it's expected to last  coming up at 6 a.m.

Relatives are speaking out on the anniversary of a horrific fire that claimed the lives of a Marengo county couple during the holidays. The remains of the couple's home have been untouched over the past year as their family members push to know more about what happened the night they died. Coming up at 6:50 a.m. hear their plea.

The scheme targets the homeless and those down on their luck and authorities say the problem is nationwide. As Anchor Sally Pitts discovered, it's called Operation Homeless and the crime is gaining momentum. Coming up at 6:20 a.m. hear what officials have to say about it and how you can make sure your donations are going to the right place.
