Several coins and a black bag with the Secret Service insignia on it were later recovered, but the laptop and the sensitive documents remain missing.
"The Secret Service is very heavily involved and, citing national security, there's very little we have on our side," a police source told the New York Daily News. "It's a very big deal.”
Video surveillance shows the thief arriving at the agent’s home in a car, walking right up to her motorcycle, and taking the items. He was seen fleeing the scene.
The person who took the laptop also swiped the agent’s access keycard, sources said.
While nothing about the White House or foreign leaders is stored on the laptop, the information on there could compromise national security, the agent told investigators.
NYPD officers were assisting in the investigation but had little information about what’s on the laptop, sources said.
