Steven Henshaw reports:
State police said Friday that they have recovered one of two laptop computers stolen from Albright College’s financial aid office.
Troopers said it appears the suspect, who is not a student, stole the computers to trade them for drugs, not the information they contained.
The second laptop remains missing and an investigation is continuing.
The laptop is believed to be the one that held most of the data that college officials were concerned about — personal information on 10,000 current, former and prospective students, investigators said.
Officials said one laptop was taken from the financial aid office in Selwyn Hall between Feb. 11 and 14. The other was taken from the office during the weekend of Feb. 18 and 20.
The building is locked on weekends, and there were no signs of a break-in, investigators said.
