    NORFOLK, Virginia (AP) -- A laptop computer that may contain classified
    information was apparently stolen from the USS Ponce, Navy officials said
    No arrests have been made. Naval investigators are looking into whether
    the computer had classified material stored on it, said Cmdr. John
    Singley, a Navy spokesman. 
    Officials said they do not know exactly when the theft occurred, though it
    likely happened around the weekend of August 8-9 while the ship was at the
    Norfolk Naval Base.  The Ponce is between overseas deployments. 
    Laptop computers typically are used for administrative and training
    purposes, but classified information is sometimes stored on them, Singley
    The Ponce is an amphibious transport dock that was commissioned in 1971.
