Christchurch - New Zealand police say the theft of five laptop computers from a guarded Cricket World Cup accreditation centre in Christchurch was not a security breach.
Superintendent Gary Knowles told reporters at a news conference on Wednesday the laptops contained "information of a very low level in relation to to vetting of volunteers and things."
He said "they contained no information that could breach security. They will not impact any way here or Australia in terms of security. They are securely passworded. We would just like to get those back."
The laptops were stolen from a building near Hagley Oval where the opening World Cup match between New Zealand and Sri Lanka will be played on Saturday. The facility was being used as a base for volunteers and to issue accreditation passes.
