DNR Says Employee Accessed Confidential Information

Posted: Updated:
Minnesota -

The Minnesota DNR says it's notifying about 5,000 people after an employee accessed their driving and motor vehicle records without authorization. The agency says the employee is no longer employed by the DNR. But it won't elaborate beyond that. The DNR says it has asked the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension to investigate. No charges have been filed so far. The DNR says its own investigation found no indication the data was sold, disclosed to others or used for criminal purposes. But the agency is advising the 5,000 affected people to monitor their credit reports.
