ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – A middle-school tour group from Western Tennessee on Monday became the latest victim of a vehicle break-in in downtown St. Louis.

Officials said members of the group from Tipton County schools were returning to their bus parked outside the City Museum when they discovered the theft.

The group said the thieves stole multiple items, including DVD players, insulin, eyeglasses and lunch boxes.

St. Louis police on the scene had no comment on the case.

The incident marks the second time in two weeks thieves stole from buses parked in the downtown area.

Just last week, police were investigating after thieves stole items from an Illinois high school basketball team’s bus parked near the Arch.

In that incident, students from Cornerstone Christian Academy in Sycamore, Illinois said the thieves stole more than $15,000 worth of iPods, tablet computers, book bags, headphones, wallets, a laptop computer and clothing.
