WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – A break-in at storage units in Wichita, Kansas, became a diplomatic security issue last year because two of the units belong to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

A Wichita police statement says the State Department sent a security officer to the East Side Mini Storage last November to discuss the case with police. A State Department official said it is standard procedure to send an agent to investigate any incidents involving the secretary.

The case has been temporarily closed without any viable leads or suspects.

The Kansas City Star reports a police report obtained through an open records request said the former Kansas congressman’s units contained tables, chairs and some campaign items.

Wichita police spokesman Officer Charley Davidson said it appears the theft was random and Pompeo’s units were not targeted.
