Military investigators have found two missing laptop computers that were taken from the headquarters of the US Army Central Command in Florida.
The theft, which was right under the nose of some of the tightest security in the US, sparked a nationwide security alert involving a team of 50 investigators.
Classified data on one of the laptops is understood to have been on military operations in Afghanistan.
However, the Air Force Office of Special Investigations told Reuters they had found the missing computers and were holding a man who had admitted removing them.
The man, who is in the military, has not been identified, but the computers were recovered from his home.
No charges have yet been brought against him and there has been no indication that his motive was spying.
The lost laptops incident occurred just days after a Justice Department audit found that more than 400 of the department's laptop computers had gone missing or were reported stolen.
