September 6, 2019
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The FBI is investigating after computer hackers managed to steal about $4.2 million in funds from a pension system for retired Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers and other state law enforcement officers, state officials said Friday.
A notice posted on the Oklahoma Law Enforcement Retirement System website said the agency notified the FBI and couldn't comment further on details of the breach.
"However, we are certain the stolen funds will be recovered," the post said. "Most importantly, no pension benefits to members or beneficiaries have been impacted or put at risk."
