DNR says worker improperly accessed license data

Email

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A Department of Natural Resources employee accessed the driving and motor vehicle records of about 5,000 Minnesotans without authorization, the agency said Tuesday.

The employee is no longer employed by the DNR, the agency said in a statement. DNR spokesman Chris Niskanen said he couldn't say whether the employee was fired.

The DNR has asked the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension to investigate, but no criminal charges have been filed so far.
