EDMONTON — Police are looking for five laptops that have been stolen from an Alberta Health Services office in Edmonton.

Investigators say it appears one person took the computers during an apparent break-in at a department call centre in a west-side plaza on Jan. 25.

No one has been arrested.

AHS won't specify what type of information is stored on the laptops, but it says the machines are password-protected.

An AHS laptop was stolen from an Edmonton medical clinic in 2014.

It contained the names, dates, health-care numbers, billing codes and other data covering more than 620,000 Albertans. (CHED)
