Skip to comments.TRUMP TOWER: SECRET SERVICE THEFT CAUGHT ON VIDEO Thief Knew What He Was After
Posted on 03/20/2017 7:06:59 AM PDT by RummyChick
The thief who swiped a Secret Service agents laptop targeted the agent in question and knew exactly what he was after ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.
Our sources say the thief -- whom they say is a man -- was caught on surveillance video pulling up to the agent's driveway in an Uber at around 3 AM Thursday. The video shows the man make a beeline for the agent's car, removing a backpack with the computer inside and then walking off. As we reported, the hard drive contained Trump Tower floor plans and evacuation protocols, but the agency insists there was no classified info inside.
The thief also made off with a passport and several Secret Service lapel pins. It's unclear what the thief was looking for if all the content was non-sensitive. We're told the video is grainy so it's hard to make out the thief's features, but it's definitely a lead.
“shows the man make a beeline for the agent’s car”
The Secret Service leave important stuff...in the car? When parked in a driveway?
What has happened to this agency.
This was a hand off, not a robbery.
Yeah....that backpack with the laptop inside was left for a scheduled pickup.
This was a drop and a pickup. No one “stole” anything.
Every SS agent is most likely spied upon by other countries’ agents.
This ‘thief’ knew what, where, when and how....................
If the video was "grainy" and of poor quality...how could they distinguish the UBER sticker on the car....?
and if it was UBER they can get the start address, full name and credit card number and credit history, address etc of the rider.
Is this a stupid or too obvious question.....WHY didn’t the Secret Service Agent take this sensitive material inside his home????
Or was the thief MEANT to get this item?
OR do I read too many spy novels?
WHAT?! It was targeted? LOL! Uh, yeah. My thoughts from the git-go. NOT random act of petty thievery. But don’t worry. Without the superultra secret decoder ring it’s just a paper weight. Right? WHO leaves their laptop so easily accessible? Guess the same people who leave their weapons easily accessible like in SF/Kate shooting.
I still don’t understand how a Bajaj motorcycle got into this story.
It appears it was a car as per eye witness.
Lamecherry theorized the guy was suppose to make a copy but took the laptop instead for protection.
Has this agent been removed yet????
“This was a hand off, not a robbery.”
If it happened like it was stated, you’re exactly right.
Ya gotta go back and see who was observing her earlier in the day....and/or if she observes a strict pattern.
Eye witness saw the Uber sticker is what I am remembering
Will the lapel pins and ID allow security clearance?
Are you kidding..they just now removed the Agent who wouldn’t take a bullet for Trump.
Saw where SS likes to move people into other positions so they can keep pension, etc.
