COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio authorities are investigating how an inmate obtained a list of prison administrators' usernames and passwords.

Prisons spokeswoman JoEllen Smith says the list was discovered during a random search at Lebanon Correctional Institution on July 10.

Smith said Thursday the Department of Rehabilitation and Correction put security measures in place afterward but there was no evidence of a data breach.

The State Highway Patrol says it is investigating the possibility of criminal violations while the prisons agency is trying to figure out how the inmate got the information.

The prisoner was put in segregation during the investigation. Officials haven't publicly identified the inmate.
