Mike Manzoni reports:
Two laptops with private patient data were stolen from a Gaffney health care clinic Monday, police said.
Investigators said the thief or thieves broke into Novant Health Gaffney Family Medical Care on Stuard Street overnight either late Sunday or Monday morning and stole the laptops from an office.
Police said the health center said the private data on both laptops was encrypted and would be “…very difficult to access.”
