OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - An Oakland museum dedicated to California history has been hit by thieves, but officials aren't saying exactly what was taken or how much it was worth.
The Oakland Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/W6bu05 ) that someone broke a door to get into the Oakland Museum of California on Monday night then stole some artifacts and precious metals from a gallery before leaving through another door.
The museum's executive director, Lori Fogarty, says the stolen objects have more historical than monetary value. The police asked her not to reveal the pieces that were taken.
Fogarty says the building's security alarms went off during the break-in and that Oakland officers arrived within three minutes.
Police are reviewing surveillance footage for possible leads.
