Nice Guys Finish Last

Today, the infamous stolen VA laptop turned up at an FBI field office in Baltimore, Maryland. The unidentified person who turned in the computer, according to the FBI, has not been charged because they believe the device was lifted during a routine burglary and that the VA data was not the target. Upon inspection, the sensitive files within the laptop appeared to not have been accessed, but the unit will be sent for forensic testing in Washington. As for the good samaritan who handed it in ... the FBI isn't sure if the person is eligible for the $50,000 reward offered for information on the laptop's whereabouts. I guess having extremely sought after evidence hand delivered to your office kind of takes the "thrill of the hunt" out of the whole thing, and now the tipster will be lucky to even get a handshake.
