EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. (AP) - Southwestern Illinois officials say hackers may have accessed thousands of credit card n umbers used by people who bought tickets to Edwardsville's Wildey Theatre.
Investigators say as many as 6,000 credit cards were compromised.
Police Chief Jay Keeven says investigators still aren't sure of the full scope of the breach, but say there's no evidence that credit card numbers used to pay city utility bills, court fines or other fees were also accessed.
The historic theater that opened in 1909 is owned by the city.
Still, Keeven said investigators "strongly suggest" people who've conducted business with Edwardsville closely monitor their credit card statements.
People who live near a Bridgeton landfill get to return home today. Some had been staying in hotels as excavation work was done at the landfill which had been emitting a noxious odor.
Work is still still being done at the landfill. So far, six concrete pipes have been removed which contributed to the terrible smell.
Republic Services is now installing a landfill cap to control the odor.
U.S. employers added 175,000 jobs in May, steady hiring but below the more robust pace that took place during the fall and winter.
The Labor Department says the unemployment rate rose to 7.6 percent from 7.5 percent in April. The increase occurred because more people began looking for work, a good sign.
The government said the economy added 12,000 fewer jobs in April and March.
Employers have added an average of 155,000 jobs in past three months, below the average of 237,000 created from November through February.
The modest gains likely mean the Federal Reserve will continue its bond purchases. The Fed has said it will maintain its pace of bond purchases until the job market improves substantially. The purchases have helped drive down interest rates and boost stock prices.
