An Odd Theft

Is this just a simple identity theft crime or something more? FT.com:

The BBC has called in the police after discovering the apparent theft of two files containing details of employees it is sending to cover this summer’s Olympic Games in Beijing. The paper duplicates of electronic files contained the names, passport details and some address details of the BBC’s 437-strong delegation, 33 more than it sent for the Athens games four years ago.
