Authorities say personal information on 900 Los Angeles County mental health patients was stolen but it’s unclear if any of it was misused for ID theft.
The Los Angeles Times reported documents with Social Security numbers, birth dates, medical and insurance information were found on April 3 at the home of a nurse who worked at the Augustus F. Hawkins Mental Health Center.
The information was for patients who were treated at the county mental health facility between 2011 and this year.
The theft remains under investigation.
