The incident was reported at 9:22 p.m. ET on Friday when officers were called to a report of a theft in the 100 block of Brown Street. Upon arrival, 4 men who work for Clinton's presidential campaign told the officers that their vehicle had been broken into.

The men explained that they parked their 2016 Buick Enclave on Brown Street at about 8 p.m., after which they went to a restaurant in the 900 block of North 2nd Street. When they returned to the vehicle at 9:15 p.m. they observed that the rear passenger window was broken.

Taken from the vehicle were 3 backpacks, each containing a MackBook Pro and various other items. "The computers may have contained scheduling information surrounding for the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign," said Philadelphia police spokeswoman Tanya Little.

There was no immediate word from Clinton's campaign and it is unclear if the laptops may have contained sensitive information. It is also unknown if the thief or thieves were aware that the vehicle belonged to Clinton campaign employees.

After the incident was reported, police held the vehicle as a crime scene and detectives were notified. The SUV was later towed to the Philadelphia Police Department's garage for further processing and detectives are canvasing the area for video surveillance.

As a result of the theft, Philadelphia Police have notified the U.S. Secret Service and the Department of Homeland Security. Officer Little said the notification is a standard procedure and the agencies will work with Philadelphia Police as needed.
