Names of AIDS patients stolen in Anchorage

Posted: Friday, September 24, 2010

ANCHORAGE - Anchorage police say a woman suspected of more than a dozen vehicle break-ins over the Labor Day weekend probably took a data storage device containing the names of 2,000 HIV and AIDS patients.

The device was taken from a vehicle belonging to the director of the Alaskan Aids Assistance Association, a nonprofit that provides HIV testing, counseling, medicine and other help.

KTUU-TV reports the group is working with police to determine how many people to notify that their personal information is missing.

Police are looking for the 29-year-old theft suspect.
