Soldier Readiness Processing Center, "1000s" of SSNs, Thieves

COLORADO SPRINGS – Fort Carson has cautioned thousands of its soldiers to watch their credit records carefully following the theft of computerized personnel records from the post.

Thieves broke into the Soldier Readiness Processing center over the weekend of Aug. 20-21 and stole four computer hard drives containing thousands of personnel records, Fort Carson spokeswoman Dee McNutt said Monday.
