BILOXI, Miss. (AP) A San Antonio, Texas, woman is offering a $1,000 reward for the return of a laptop computer stolen from her vehicle this week in Biloxi.
Jackie Scherer tells The Sun Herald (http://bit.ly/TeDJz1 ) the laptop contains half of her dissertation on paleoclimatology, due in a few weeks.
Scherer says the reward is valid only if the laptop is returned with its data in place. She is willing to give a reward for the return of its external hardrive or the thumb drives.
Scherer says the laptop was stolen from the car while she and her husband spent Tuesday night at the Beau Rivage Casino on their return home from a trip to Florida.
She says the laptop was in the back seat under a blanket and some pillows.
