MSP Say People Are Stealing Bottled Water Meant For Flint Residents

State police say people are stealing bottled water meant for the residents of Flint who are still dealing with a water crisis.

State police say they’re now thinking of requiring identification at distribution sites in Flint, complicating a process residents have been using since 2014 when the water system was tainted by lead.

State police say an average of nearly 22,000 cases were handed out daily in late July.

Experts say the water is safe to drink if a filter is used.
