Philly police: Laptop theft suspect unaware of Clinton campaign link

PHILADELPHIA - Philadelphia police say the man arrested as a suspect in the theft of three laptop computers from the car of Hillary Clinton campaign workers had no idea the items were part of any campaign.

A 27-year-old man was taken into custody Saturday at his home in the west Kensington neighborhood and the three computers were recovered.

Four campaign workers had parked their car on a street near Interstate 95 and the Delaware River on Friday night and had gone to a restaurant. They returned to find the rear passenger window broken and three backpacks gone. A campaign official says they were personal belongings of three staffers.

Police called it a random theft and say the suspect had no idea whose car it was or of any link to any campaign.

Authorities believed the computers may have contained information on Clinton’s campaign schedule because the men work for her campaign.

Clinton will be in Philadelphia on Monday night for the final rally of her 2016 campaign.
