Police say gang task force office in Aurora burglarized; Joshua Christensen charged in theft

AURORA, Colo. - Authorities are reviewing security measures after a burglar stole hard drives from the office of a Denver-area police gang task force.

The Aurora office of the Metro Gang Task Force was burglarized Feb. 22.

The task force is comprised of local and federal police agents pursuing gang investigations.

Police have charged 21-year-old Joshua Christensen with the burglary.

Aurora police Sgt. Chris Amsler says Christensen apparently didn't target the task force because adjacent businesses were burglarized.

Amsler says no sensitive information was lost, but that authorities are reviewing security at the Aurora office.
