Police in three Ohio cities are investigating the theft of three large storage bins from bank branches earlier this month. The storage bins were used to store paper waiting to be shredded. Three branches of the FirstMerit Bank in Streetsboro, Westlake and Elyria, OH each reported a bin missing beginning on October 7. One of the three bins contained personal documents of bank customers.
