A Secret Service agent’s belongings, including his black Sig Sauer gun, handcuffs, U.S. Secret Service radio, a USB flash drive and badge (#1266), were stolen from his vehicle according to a police report. CNN’s Michelle Kosinski reports.

A U.S. Secret Service agent assigned to the President’s Protective Division lost possession of a handgun, a radio, and a badge in a vehicle burglary of his private vehicle that was parked near the agency’s downtown Washington headquarters in the 1000 block of G Street NW. A spokesman for the U.S. Secret Service, Robert Hoback, confirmed what was in an initial CNN report that broke the story, but offered no other comment.

Various witness and observer reports have noted that U.S. Secret Service agents in The Presidential Protection Division use P25 Digital Encryption similar to radio encryption that is used by police departments in Arlington Heights and the northwest suburbs. The US Secret Service radio that is missing is an APX6000 radio, The radios cost about $1800 in contract pricing, but with software, data and encryption features added, they list at a contract price of about $3400. The portable radio is the same radio that is used by Arlington Heights Police Department and other police departments in the Northwest Central Dispatch System.

Leaving a weapon and other security items in a personal vehicle unguarded is a strict violation of security policies for law enforcement officers.

Earlier this month, a Secret Service officer was shot and killed, during an apparent robbery, after he had been suspended following his arrest in a domestic incident. Arthur Baldwin, age 30, was shot multiple times in the 4700 block of 1st Street, police said Wednesday. He was unresponsive when police found him, and was later pronounced dead at a local hospital. Baldwin had been charged with first-degree attempted burglary and destruction of property after he kicked down a door during a fight with his former girlfriend, which led to his suspension.

These latest incidents are two of a series of alarming incidents involving U.S. Secret Service agents.

A Secret Service agent’s car was broken into near the White House. CNN’s Joe Johns reports.
