Police are asking the public for assistance Tuesday identifying two alleged thieves who broke into Lower Merion High School to steal Kobe Bryant memorabilia.
The burglary occurred Sunday around 7:30 p.m. on the school's campus in Montgomery County, the Lower Merion Police Department announced.
School principal Sean Hughes and athletic director Don Walsh said the stolen items included a framed replica of Bryant's high school jersey, the 1996 PIAA Boys Basketball State Championship trophy, the net from that championship game, programs from state and district title games, a proclamation from the Pennsylvania House honoring the team and several pairs of Nike sneakers that had been autographed by Bryant.
Police said both suspects wore gloves and concealed their faces during the robbery.
Anyone with information is urged to contact police at (610) 645-6236.
