An employee discovered Thursday morning that an unidentified suspect hacked into the computer system of Southeastern Technologies to gain access to company information and use the server for illegal activity.
The suspect was allegedly caught while in the process of downloading programs. Based on evidence collected from the server, detectives believe the suspect lives in the United Kingdom, according to a Murfreesboro Police Department incident report.
The company, located on Industrial Boulevard, specializes in providing services and manufacturing expertise for a variety of fields, including medical devices and aerospace components.
Additional details were not included in the report about whether the Federal Bureau of Investigation and U.S. Department of Homeland Security have been notified of the incident.
