WA: Personnel files for Larch workers stolen

Kathie Durbin reports:

The Washington Department of Corrections is investigating an incident in which a briefcase full of sensitive personnel records was stolen from the vehicle of a Larch Corrections Center manager early Monday morning.

Larch human resources manager Roy Murphy reportedly took the records home over last weekend to review them, then left his briefcase on the seat of his car while he worked out at the 24-Hour Fitness Center at 13019 N.E. Fourth Plain Blvd. between 6 and 7:15 a.m. Monday.

While he was inside, someone smashed a window in the car. Murphy returned to find the briefcase and 43 files missing. Others had spilled out of the briefcase inside the car.
