1 minute read

A Secret Service agent’s gun, badge and other belongings were stolen out of his car Monday near the White House.

The unnamed agent, who works in the Presidential Protective Division, said his handgun, radio, handcuffs and a flash drive were among the items taken from his parked car in downtown Washington, D.C. about 4 p.m., CNN reports.

It’s unclear what the flash drive contained. The agent said in a police report he returned to his car and noticed the back rear window of his car had been “unzipped,” according to CNN.

The Secret Service confirmed the report to TIME on Tuesday but declined to comment. The Metropolitan Police Department declined to give information over the phone.
