Video cameras stolen from the Manteca High School sports department topped the list of crimes in the city over the weekend.

Coaches called Manteca Police shortly after arriving at work Monday morning to report the theft described as a commercial burglary with the obvious use of a pry bar to gain entry, officers reported.

The value of the loss or the number of cameras taken was not available at press time.

An embezzlement was reported by staff members at the Manteca branch of the Bank of America in addition to four auto burglaries, two stolen vehicles, two residential burglaries, one firearm’s offense and one other commercial burglary.

A home in the 1300 block of Clubhouse Way was reportedly discovered to have been burglarized shortly before midnight on Sunday.
