OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - More than $40,000 in equipment has been stolen from a crew working for NBA Entertainment after thieves broke into their van in Oakland.

The Oakland Tribune reports police say the three men had gone to get something to eat inside a shopping center Tuesday and returned to the van to find a window smashed and several items missing.

Five lap tops worth an estimated $16,000, camera equipment worth $25,000, cell phones and personal belongings had been taken.

The shopping center located across the highway from Oracle Arena and the Coliseum has been a popular area for car burglaries.

Police are planning to increase patrols of the parking lot and other areas where media and tourists frequent during the NBA Finals in Oakland.
