Soldier's Computer Stolen, Wants Pictures Back

A computer is stolen, but it's more than just a missing machine for one woman who was awarded a Purple Heart. The computer held thousands of pictures of a soldier's tour of the desert. 

Virginia Caballero's apartment was burglarized last Friday. The thief took a commonly stolen item - her blue Toshiba laptop. But on that computer were pictures of each step of Caballero's tour of Iraq, including snapshots of her being awarded the Purple Heart after being shot in action.  

"It has sentimental value, and that all the pictures I have from my tour in Iraq are in this computer and backups are in the thumb drives. Everything was taken together and now I have no pictures to remind me of everything we did in Iraq," said Caballero.

But Caballero says she's not concerned about the computer, just the pictures. She's offering a personal cash reward for the return of the computer or the seven flash drives in the laptop's carrying case. If you have any information on this case, please call Crime Line at 741-1000.
