LANCASTER, Pa. (AP) -- A laptop stolen from a payroll auditor contains
personal information on 12,000 current and former Armstrong World Industries
Inc. employees, the company said.

The data include home addresses and phone numbers, Social Security numbers
and how much the people were paid. A two-page letter sent by Armstrong last
week said the company was not aware of any misuse of the information, and
that a password was required to access the information on the computer.

The laptop was stolen from a locked car belonging to a Deloitte & Touche LLP
employee, Armstrong said. Deborah G. Harrington, a spokeswoman for the
consulting firm, declined to comment.
