MILWAUKEE - A worker for Dynacare Laboratories lost a flash drive containing employee names and social security numbers when her car was stolen last month.

According to Mayor Tom Barrett, the car was stolen on October 22nd from the east side. The thumb drive was in a purse left in the employee's car.

"How in God's name could you put this information, this important information about city employees, on a flash drive?" the mayor asked Friday night after learning of the incident.
