LOS ANGELES (AP) — Laptops and iPads containing sensitive information about Republican presidential front-runner Mitt Romney’s campaign were stolen from an SUV in San Diego last week.
The electronics were stolen last Friday from a rental car parked car in San Diego, the Romney campaign confirmed Tuesday. The items belonged to two Romney campaign staffers. The thefts were first reported by KGTV, a local San Diego TV station.
Two laptops, two iPads and two handheld radios were taken.
Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul called the incident an “unfortunate inconvenience” but said the campaign wasn’t worried about the release of any sensitive information. She said the campaign didn’t suspect the items were stolen for political reasons.
