ST. GALLEN, Switzerland -- Swiss police say credit cards, tens of thousands of dollars in cash and electronic devices were stolen from the Chile soccer team's hotel rooms while the squad played Spain.

State police said Saturday that the robber apparently packed the loot into a wheeled suitcase that also was stolen and was able to leave the hotel undetected.

World champion Spain beat Chile 3-2 on Friday night in the friendly.
