    It sounds like whatever information was on that computer might be safe.

    Highly coincidental timing...

    The computer may've been the (a) bugged-device. Wanna bet it goes Jimmy Hoffa... ?

    Never found again.

    (key media tangible)... a laptop in a parked car is too irresistible not to steal. The thief 'just happened' to be walking-by. No worry about a car-alarm going off. " That's crime in New York City for ya, America. Now, in other news, which hopefully will distract you from the story you just heard... "

    A brazen thief in New York City stole a Secret Service agent’s laptop computer that reportedly contained Trump Tower’s floor plans, information about the Hillary Clinton email probe and national security information

    The theft from the agent’s car in Brooklyn occurred Thursday morning, according to the New York Daily News, which cited police sources in a story published Friday.

    The car was parked in the driveway of the agent’s home. In addition to the laptop, other reportedly “sensitive” documents and an access keycard belonging to the agent were stolen, the Daily News reported

    The thief took an UBER

    Unbelievable. A normal police-investigation anywhere in the country, would've had a 60% success-rate in finding the perp already. It's been over 24-hours.

    What's taking so long? There's no laptop-ring anymore. A distribution-ring for electronic-equipment... I would think it's all pads and pods nowadays.

    Pawn-shop prices gotta be on the low end... vs. a high-risk auto break-in. Calling-in the police-procedure of seeing how many other unsolved car-burglaries took place in that area lately.

    The Seth Rich assassination in broad daylight on a Washington Street is still unsolved after 9-months. He's the DNC-employee who allegedly leaked DNC-info to Wikileaks.

    No one else has been assassinated in that area before or since.

    It's my understanding that UBER is app based and they have your account info on file. I would think that would help to track down the guy, unless of course he has moved or used someone else's phone.

    Which begins to prove my suspicions... Why go through the trouble of using phone's and cabs? UBER costs money. A thief is already cutting-into-his-profit before he even steals a laptop. Who plans like that? And shouldn't a reward be reported as being offered?

    Being near Vegas, you might remember the prototype game-laptops that were ripped-off at the CES Tech Show in January:

    http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-38565913

    With those the motive is pretty-clear; jealousy of a tech-rival within the industry.

    A Secret Service laptop containing sensitive information about Trump Tower, details about the Hillary Clinton e-mail probe and other national security secrets was swiped from an agent’s motorcyclein Brooklyn, police sources said Friday

    Argentieri told investigators that the laptop held sensitive information about national security the floor plans for Trump Tower, evacuation protocols and details about the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s e-mail server.

    While none of the info pertains to White House officials or foreign leaders, she said it could ultimately compromise national security. Sources told The Post that the laptop cannot be remotely erased or traced

    A black bag with the Secret Service insignia on it was also taken — along with an access keycard, several lapel pins that Secret Service agents are required to wear when protecting the president and other sensitive documents, sources said.

    An agency-issued radio, used for closed-circuit communications between agents, was also among the stolen items, according to Politico
