Police Report Laptop Information Did Not Appear to Be Accessed

News 2 reports that the homeless burglar sold the two Election Commission laptops he stole on Christmas Eve for $80 and a six-pack of beer to a Downtown "rave-type coffee shop." The computers changed hands 3 or 4 times before police located them but the police are satisfied that the security of voters' personal data was not compromised in the transactions.

In the meantime, police expressed suspicion about the coffee house, given that they found other pieces of computer hardware and software throughout.

  1. Somehow that doesn't fill me full of warm and fuzzy. A bunch of kids moving used/stolen computer equipment, versus Metro PD. Who of those 2 knows more about computers?
