LITTLE FALLS, N.J. (AP) – Authorities are investigating a burglary at a museum honoring Yogi Berra.

Montclair State University Police Chief Paul Cell says the break-in at the Yogi Berra Museum and Learning Center happened Wednesday morning. He would not say what, if anything, was taken.

The museum honoring the New York Yankees Hall of Famer opened in the late 1990s. It is located on the university’s campus in the northern New Jersey community of Little Falls. In addition to the baseball exhibits and memorabilia, it offers children’s educational programs that focus on sportsmanship and social justice.

County, state and federal agencies are assisting in the investigation.

The Essex County Crimestoppers program is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest of those responsible for the burglary.
