Personal information swiped from Norfolk case worker's car


The personal information of about 30 clients of Norfolk’s Community Services Board was compromised when a case worker’s briefcase was stolen.

Officials say the briefcase was left in the worker’s car in a Virginia Beach parking garage on March 24, but someone smashed a window and stole it.

The case worker violated the agency’s policy by taking sensitive patient information outside the board’s offices, Executive Director George Pratt said.

He says it’s unclear what information was in the files but that it likely included Social Security numbers.  However, he didn’t think there was information about patients’ conditions.
