San Francisco Police Department has recovered the items that were stolen from a U.S. Olympic skater early last week.  

Police recovered the stolen items last Sunday following an investigation that provided several leads and are working to reunite them with their owner.  

On January 8, Olympian Marissa Castelli was visiting San Francisco's Japantown with her parents, following her competing in the U.S. Figure Skating Championships in San Jose the previous week.

They were victims of the much-reported-on epidemic of car break ins the city has been experiencing. Around 8 p.m., their SUV  was broken into on the 1600 block of Webster. Luggage containing her skating costumes worth at least $1,000 and Castelli's skates were stolen. 

SFPD did not release any suspect information. 

The January 8th auto burglary investigation is still an ongoing open investigation and anyone with information is asked to call the San Francisco Police Department’s 24 Hour Tip Line at (415) 575-4444 or Text a Tip to TIP411 and begin the text message with SFPD.  You may remain anonymous.
