“We are saddened to learn of a break-in at the Yogi Berra Museum and Learning Center,” museum director Dave Kaplan said in a statement. “We are cooperating fully with the Montclair State University Police Department and other county, state and federal agencies that are assisting with this investigation.”
The museum was worked over by “a team of professionals” set on pilfering “specific” items, the New York Daily News reported.
The thieves may have gained entry to the museum via the connecting Yogi Berra Stadium, WCBS 880’s Peter Haskell reported, as the front of the museum– a wall of glass– shows no signs of a break-in.
