Records containing the names, Social Security numbers and birth dates of more than 40,000 members of Voluntary Employees Benefit Association of Hawaii were illegally reproduced at a copying business before they were to be put onto a compact disc for the State. Police later found the data on a computer that had been confiscated as part of a drug investigation.  Those who were on the list and Hawaii Government Employees Association and United Public Workers members who were enrolled in union-sponsored health and group life insurance plans between July and December 1999 were warned.  Investigators were only able to speculate that the theft may have occurred in February of 2005.
