Campaign reports missing laptop with donor info

By Associated Press 4:52 PM May 30, 2014
JUNEAU –

The campaign of Alaska gubernatorial candidate Byron Mallott is reporting that a laptop computer with donor financial information is missing.

KTOO-radio (http://bit.ly/1keOGLn) reports the laptop was determined to be missing Wednesday night from the Anchorage campaign office.

Campaign adviser Bruce Botelho says the laptop had been in a restricted area at the back of the office.

He says a back door had not been properly latched and someone may have come in while volunteers were in the front, public area.

The computer contained copies of checks and credit card numbers with addresses and security codes.

The computer was shut down and password protected.

The campaign on Thursday sent letters to more than a thousand contributors recommending they monitor their accounts.

Anchorage police are investigating the incident.
