Sandra Kirk of FOX16 reports that paper files with personal information on 16 families, including Social Security numbers and medical information was stolen from the backseat of an Arkansas Department of Human Services employee’s unlocked car on May 5.

The employee was permitted to take files off site under DHS’s rules, but had not safeguarded them by leaving them in an unlocked car.

Notification letters to those affected were not sent until June 26th.
