NEW YORK (AP) - The Secret Service says it is investigating a credit- and debit-card data theft at Target stores.

Secret Service spokesman Brian Leary confirms the agency is investigating, but declined to provide further details.

Minneapolis-based Target Corp. did not respond to requests for comment. A MasterCard representative referred questions to Target.

Target has 1,797 stores in the U.S. and 124 in Canada.
