NEW YORK (CBSMiami) — New York Police detectives are investigating the theft of a laptop belonging to the U.S. Secret Service.

The laptop, reportedly containing sensitive documents and information on President Trump and Pope Francis, was taken from inside an agent’s vehicle Thursday morning, as it was parked in front of his Brookyln home.

“The U.S. Secret Service can confirm that an employee was the victim of a criminal act in which our Agency-issued laptop computer was stolen,” said the U.S. Secret Service in a statement. “Secret Service issued laptops contain multiple layers of security, including full disk encryption, and are not permitted to contain classified information.”

The laptop also contained information on Trump Tower floor plans, evacuation protocol, and information about Hillary Clinton’s campaign email investigation.

None of the information was considered classified, however, and there wasn’t anything in there related to the White House, CBS News reported. It is being handled as a breach in national security.

Authorities are looking over surveillance video in the area to try to identify a potential suspect.
