WILKES-BARRE, Pennsylvania (CNN) -- Computers containing identifying information on more than 11,000 people were stolen Tuesday from a Pennsylvania Department of Transportation driver's license center in Wilkes-Barre, the agency said.
Thieves broke into the center around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday and stole two computers containing information on 11,384 people whose photos had been taken at the location between August 30 and November 28, the department reported.
The computers contained complete Social Security numbers for 5,348 people, it said, and the last four digits of the Social Security numbers of 6,000 others.
The data included individuals' names, addresses, dates of birth and driver's license numbers.
The thieves also stole equipment that could be used to make fake driver's licenses and identification cards.
The Department of Transportation said it began notifying all 11,384 customers Thursday and is working with state police in the investigation.
Calls placed to the Pennsylvania State Police were not immediately returned Thursday.
