A laptop computer containing floor plans for Trump Tower, information about the Hillary Clinton email investigation, other national security information, and a Secret Service key card were stolen from a Secret Service agent’s vehicle in Brooklyn, police sources told the Daily News. 

The Daily News reports that authorities have been in a frantic search for the stolen computer since it was taken early Thursday morning. So far, the only items to have recovered from the heist have been some coins and a black bag with the Secret Service insignia on it.

According to the Daily News, the thief stepped out of a vehicle, possibly an Uber, on a street in Bath Beach and stole the laptop from the agent’s vehicle, which was parked in the driveway of her home. He was then seen on video walking away from the scene with a backpack.

The agent who was supposed to be in possession of the laptop explained that it contained floor plans for Trump Tower, evacuation protocols and information regarding the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server. She admitted that though there was no information on the White House or foreign leaders on the computer, it could still compromise national security, said the Daily News.

The Daily News explained that the New York Police Department is assisting the investigation, but that they have very little information at this time.

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

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