"Documents containing information on violent and registered sex offenders were left on a bus in Brighton by a Prison Service employee, police said.
Sussex Police said the file contained the cases of several people being managed by the Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements.
It was reported missing on Tuesday by the prison employee.
A 32-year-old man who found the file handed it in to The Argus newspaper from where police recovered it.
A police spokesman said officers identified the bus involved when the incident was reported. CCTV revealed the documents had been picked up by the man, from Brighton.
He was arrested on suspicion of theft on Wednesday morning but said he had handed the documents to the newspaper."
