Laptop with country’s birth certificate information stolen

Police are investigating the theft of a laptop that they fear could result in cases of identity theft. That’s because the stolen computer belongs to the Government of Belize and was issued to the head of the Vital Statistics Unit, Lovina Daniels. It contains confidential birth certificate information for the entire country. Daniels had the laptop in her Toyota Corolla Car, which she parked inside the Princess Hotel and Casino compound on Thursday night at around nine o’clock. But someone broke into the vehicle and took the computer along with a cell phone and the keys to the Vital Statistics Office. No one has been detained but police are working around the clock to find the culprit before the information is used for criminal purposes.
