DETROIT (AP) - Police are investigating thefts from a car and SUV driven by Homeland Security agents.

The Detroit News ( ) says the agents parked Wednesday in a rear lot in the city’s Corktown neighborhood near downtown and returned to find the vehicles broken into.

A laptop and keys were taken from a white Toyota Corolla. Items also were taken from an unmarked, government-owned GMC Acadia. Detroit police say no classified materials or weapons were taken.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman Khaalid Walls says empty rifle magazines and personal electronic devices were stolen from the government vehicle. He says the agent was at an authorized dinner meeting.

Detroit police Chief James Craig has said he’d seek to add more night patrols in Corktown after several reported vehicle thefts in the neighborhood.
