Blank Birth, Death Certificates Stolen

April 21, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

Two-thousand birth certificates and more than 300 death certificates were stolen from Denver's vital records office, and officials fear the documents could be used to create false identities for terrorists.

The blank certificates and an electronic seal were taken sometime overnight on April 9 or 10, detective John Costigan said. Authorities said they had no suspects.

Police notified the FBI, Interpol, the Immigration and Naturalization Service, Social Security and other federal agencies to watch for suspicious passports, driver's licenses and other documents.
