(CBS/AP) EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Police are now searching  for the suspects who broke into a New Jersey parking lot Sunday and stole from vehicles belonging to some New York Giants players while the team was in California playing the San Francisco 49ers.

The team parks in a lot in East Rutherford and employs a security firm to guard the area.

State Police Sgt. Brian Polite reportedly said that the thieves broke a lock on the gate and gained access to the lot sometime after 4 a.m. on Sunday. He said the thieves stole a 1996 Chevy Caprice, as well as items from inside multiple cars.

Officials haven't released the names of the players who were burglarized.

Offensive tackle James Brewer tweeted: "Only in Jersey can someone be heartless enough to break into my car while we are in Cali making fans proud."
