Report says INS lost thousands of computers

The Immigration and Naturalization Service cannot account for thousands of computers and hundreds of weapons it owns, according to reports about a recent audit by the Justice Department's inspector general.

The audit found that 61,000 items worth nearly $70 million were missing, according to the Associated Press. INS failed to keep track of equipment costing less than $1,000, including several thousand computers.

The news account was based on an unreleased draft of an IG report, INS spokesman Greg Gayne said, adding that he did not know when the final report would be released. Gayne declined to discuss the findings in the draft report.
