Someone stole Kobe Bryant memorabilia from the former NBA star's high school


Several pieces of Kobe Bryant memorabilia were stolen from the ex-NBA star's high school near Philadelphia, Philly.com reports, citing an email school officials sent to parents. 

Lower Merion High School officials said they discovered Sunday evening that the lock on the "Kobe Shrine" display case outside the Bryant Gymnasium had been broken. 

Here's a look at the letter that went out to parents. 

A framed replica of Bryant's high school jersey, a pair of signed Nike sneakers and the school's 1996 state championship trophy and net were among the items stolen from the display. 

"While the items from the case are not of significant monetary value, they do have a great deal of sentimental importance," the school's athletic director, Don Walsh, said in a press release. "They represent a wonderful time of accomplishment, unity and pride for our school community." 

Caution tape covered the Kobe Shrine on Monday morning.

Lower Merion police are still reviewing surveillance video from inside and outside the school in an effort to identify those responsible for this crime. 

Authorities said no one was injured in the burglary.
