A U.S. Olympic figure skater had two pricey costumes and her skates stolen from a rental SUV when while visiting San Francisco.
The San Francisco Chronicle reported Tuesday that Marissa Castelli was competing in the U.S. Figure Skating Championships in nearby San Jose last week, the SF Gate reported.
She and her parents visited San Francisco's Japantown neighborhood for lunch Monday before returning home to Rhode Island.

A burglar broke into the SUV and stole several pieces of luggage that included two skating costumes worth at least $1,000 each and her figure skates.
Castelli competed in the 2014 winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia and is the 2017 U.S. national silver medalist.
San Francisco is plagued by auto burglaries, with a record of more than 30,000 reported last year, a 24 percent increase over 2016.
After a fun day hanging in San Francisco, we stopped for a quick bite in Japantown before heading to the airport. A thief smashed the window to our rental car took a couple bags, one of those bags contained my skates and my costumes. I am heartbroken.��— Marissa Castelli (@MarissaCastelli) January 9, 2018
