Authorities are investigating a break-in at the South Side offices of former Gov. Rod Blagojevich's lawyers, where a handful of laptop computers used in the ex-governor's case were stolen.

Eight computers and a safe were swiped Thursday from the office of veteran criminal defense attorneys Sam Adam and his son Sam Adam Jr., Deputy Supt. Steve Peterson said.

Sam Adam Jr. said eight to 10 laptops were taken -- about half of which dealt with the Blagojevich case.

However, Adam said he's "99 percent sure" sensitive material was not on those laptops. The laptops link up to a main server where the sensitive material -- including tapes and transcripts that are not public -- is stored.

Don't worry about it, Sam, the thieves will be arrested after being caught on wire-taps scheming to sell the laptops to the highest bidder.
