Software tracks college computer

Hi-tech tracking software installed on electronic equipment at UNM-Los Alamos led Los Alamos police detectives straight to a trailer in El Rito.

Detectives discovered UNM-LA janitor David Suazo, 51, and the equipment July 28 at trailer 83 on State Road 215.

The case has been sent to the district attorney’s office for consideration of charges regarding the equipment that went missing from the college sometime between June 23 and July 15, Det. Doug Johnson said.

Johnson, Det. Ron Binion and state police officers exercised a search warrant at the trailer and found a Dell desktop computer, flatscreen monitor and keyboard, a mouse, three Dell speakers and associated hardware missing from the college.

UNM-LA Advisory Board Chairman Michael Wismer said the stolen computer was one of the computers used in classrooms at the campus for instructional purposes.

"There was no personal or administrative data on the computer," Wismer said. "Anytime you leave computers in a classroom for instructor use, the potential for theft is always high despite our best efforts to lock-up the hardware. As an added measure, Information Technology (IT) staff had loaded LoJack software onto all classroom computers."
