Sheriff's officials said they weren't sure how the burglary occurred - the visiting team's locker room is a bungalow with two doors and barred windows. The doors were locked during the game.
It was unclear what, exactly, was taken. But cell phones, wallets and cash were taken, the statement said.
Sheriff's officials were asking for anyone with information to contact them at 323-669-7555.
