Among other items stolen with the laptop were coins and a black bag that had the Secret Service insignia on it. Those were later recovered, but the laptop with “sensitive” material on it has not yet turned up.

The Secret Service agent’s car was in the driveway of her home in New York when a thief reportedly stole the items. The NY Daily News reported that the thief “stepped out of a car, possibly an Uber, on a street in Bath Beach and stole the laptop from the agent’s vehicle. Video footage shows the suspect leaving the scene with a backpack.

“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 NY Daily News reported. The suspect also took “sensitive” documents and the agent’s access keycard.

“The Secret Service is very heavily involved and, citing national security, there’s very little we have on our side,” a police source told the NY Daily News. “It’s a very big deal.”

“There’s data on there that’s highly sensitive,” they added. “They’re scrambling like mad.”

ABC News reported that the computer “is encrypted and authorities are able to wipe the hard drive remotely if needed.”

Secret Service agents face investigation over conduct while protecting Trump grandchild

Two Secret Service agents are facing an internal investigation over their alleged conduct last week while they protected a grandchild of President Donald Trump, people familiar with the matter tell CNN.

The actions of the two agents, who are assigned to the protective detail for the children of Donald Trump Jr., are being reviewed by the internal affairs division of the Secret Service. The questions involve photographs the agents may have been taken of one of the children while being driven around New York on Sunday.
The agents allegedly took a picture of a child sleeping in the Secret Service vehicle, according to people familiar with the matter. Neither of the boy’s parents, Donald Trump Jr. and his wife, Vanessa, were present at the time, but after learning about it, they voiced concern and raised questions with the agents’ supervisors.
The two agents were questioned on Monday, CNN has learned, and the matter is being reviewed internally by the Secret Service.
Catherine Milhoan, a spokeswoman for the Secret Service, cautioned against drawing any “conclusions that may grossly mischaracterize the matter.”
“The U.S. Secret Service is aware of a matter involving two of our agents and one of our protectees,” Milhoan said in a statement to CNN. “Our Office of Professional Responsibility will always thoroughly review a matter to determine the facts and to ensure proper, long-standing protocols and procedures are followed.”
Donald Trump Jr., the president’s oldest son, has five children, all of whom receive Secret Service protection, as do most of the family’s children and grandchildren.
Trump Jr. did not respond to requests for comment.
