12,000 Employees' Personal Data Stolen

More than 12,000 Baltimore County employees had their personal data stolen by a former contract worker.

While working for the county Courtney Calbert stole personal information such as Social Security numbers, home addresses, county identification numbers, salaries, job classifications, job titles and employees’ race and gender. He also stole individual checking and bank routing numbers.
