COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) — Seventeen aging laptop computers have been stolen from an Iowa Department of Human Services office in Pottawattamie County.

The Des Moines Register reports that nine of the social workers' laptops were missing when workers arrived on Sept. 26.

Department spokesman Roger Munns says police found no sign of forced entry. When workers arrived on Sept. 30, eight more laptop computers had been taken.

The door locks have been changed and the county is getting estimates for installing an electronic-key entry system.

Munns says the computers were 5 to 6 years old and were scheduled for replacement. He says no private information was stored on them.
