Philadelphia Man Charged With Stealing Hillary Clinton Campaign Laptops

Nov 07, 2016

Philadelphia police charged a man arrested for stealing laptops from Hillary Clinton campaign staffers with criminal mischief and theft-unlawful taking.

Christopher Colon, 27, was taken into custody Saturday at his home where the stolen computers were found.

Police said the theft was random and that Colon did not know the laptops belonged to Clinton campaign workers.

The laptops were stolen from a car four campaign workers had parked Friday night before going to a restaurant, the Associated Press reported. The staffers returned to the car to find the rear passenger window broken and backpacks belonging to three of the staffers missing.

The backpacks contained MacBook Pros that might have contained information about Clinton's campaign schedule, WPVI-TV reported.
