Computer taken in break-in at Phoenix mayor’s home

Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon says someone forced their way through his home’s backdoor and took his personal computer, apparently while he slept.

Gordon tells The Arizona Republic that everything was fine Friday night before he went to bed at around 10 p.m. He says he discovered the damaged door and the missing computer at about 6:30 a.m. Saturday.

The mayor says his wallet and checkbook were in the same room, but weren’t taken.

Gordon immediately called his security detail, which told him to leave the house and call 911. Phoenix police officers came to the mayor’s central Phoenix home to collect evidence and dust for fingerprints. But Gordon says no one has been caught.
