Saturday 29 September 2012
A laptop belonging to a National Grid security boss and former FBI agent has been stolen from a hotel room.
The laptop belonging to Warren Bamford, who retired from the FBI in 2010 and joined the National Grid as their vice president of global security, was stolen from his hotel room at the Hilton in Warwick last week.
Police are investigating the theft, which was reported to the hotel on Wednesday.
A Hilton Worldwide spokesperson said: "We can confirm that an incident of theft was reported at Hilton Warwick on Wednesday 26th September.
"The safety and security of our guests is of paramount importance and the hotel management acted immediately to alert the local authorities.
"The matter is now in the hands of Warwickshire Police and we are fully co-operating with their investigation."
She said she could not confirm how long Mr Bamford had stayed at the hotel due to guest confidentiality.
A spokeswoman for the National Grid said there was nothing on the laptop that could pose a risk to national security.
She said: "We can confirm a laptop was taken and the police are investigating the theft.
"There is no sensitive information on the laptop that could cause any sort of security risk."
