Police sources told Daily News that a laptop computer containing sensitive information was stolen from a the vehicle of a Secret Service agent in Brooklyn. It contained the following data:
- Trump Tower floor plans
- Information related to the Hillary Clinton email investigation
- National security information that could be dangerous in the wrong hands
The Secret Service laptop was stolen on Thursday. Authorities have been working frantically to locate it.
According to reports, there were other items stolen from the Secret Service vehicle along with the laptop, including:
- Black bag with the insignia “Secret Service” printed on it
These items were recovered later. But, the Secret Service laptop, which contains documents and data considered to be “sensitive” is still missing.
Reports say the laptop thief stepped out of a car on a Bath Beach street, and took the device out of the agent’s vehicle. Some believe the thief may have taken an Uber or Lyft. The Secret Service vehicle was parked in the agent’s driveway at her New York home.
He was then seen on video walking away from the scene with a backpack.
The agent reported the laptop contained floor plans for Trump Tower, evacuation protocols and information regarding the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server.
The agent also told investigators that while nothing about the White House or foreign leaders is stored on the laptop, the information on there could compromise national security.
The thief also took “sensitive” documents and the agent’s access keycard, though the level of the agent’s access wasn’t immediately clear.
NYPD cops were assisting in the investigation but had scant information on what’s on the laptop, sources said.
“The Secret Service is very heavily involved and, citing national security, there’s very little we have on our side,” a police source said. “It’s a very big deal.”
“There’s data on there that’s highly sensitive,” the police source added. “They’re scrambling like mad.”
