Arrest Made in Gov’t Office Burglary

February 23, 2002

LAKEWOOD, Colo. (AP) _ Authorities arrested a 24-year-old woman early Saturday in connection with a burglary at a federal agency that houses sensitive data on Hoover Dam.

Raul Carballido of the FBI said investigators did not believe the break-in involved a terrorist threat. He said authorities believe it was simply a random property crime.

The woman, identified as Jennifer Cisney, was arrested in nearby Golden.

The FBI was involved in the case because the burglary occurred in the Federal Highway Administration office.

Stacie Oulton, spokeswoman for Lakewood police, said a safety engineer’s identification badge and computer hard drives were stolen in the burglary.

Hoover Dam, about 30 miles east of Las Vegas, Nev., forms the largest man-made reservoir in the nation. It provides water to 23 million people and hydroelectric power for 1.3 million people in Arizona, Nevada and California.
