The Secret Service Friday confirmed an employee’s agency-issued laptop was stolen.

Law enforcement sources said the laptop contains details about Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server and Trump Tower floor plans, ABC News reported

The laptop—along with a bag and coins—was stolen from an agent’s vehicle Thursday morning, according to the New York Daily News.

“Secret Service issued laptops contain multiple layers of security including full disk encryption and are not permitted to contain classified information,” an agency statement said. The agency asks anyone with information about the crime to contact its New York field office and the New York Police Department.
