(AP) BOGOTA, Colombia - Colombian police say a lack of cooperation from embassy personnel is frustrating the search for two suspected prostitutes who allegedly stole computers from the Honduran embassy during a Christmas party.

Bogota police Col. Jose Elias Baquero tells The Associated Press that the assistant to the Honduran ambassador who allegedly granted the women entry has refused to cooperate.

Baquero says the man, Jorge Mendoza, also told police the embassy has no intention of filing a police report on the theft of the two computers.

The Dec. 20 incident cost Ambassador Carlos Rodriguez his job.

He was fired after it was exposed Jan. 4 by the Honduran newspaper El Heraldo.

Rodriguez said in an interview published Sunday that he was not in Bogota at the time of the party.
