Three Olympic medals won by a US women’s volleyball player were stolen from a home in Laguna Hills and have still not been recovered, officials said Thursday, November 10
The three medals, a silver medal at the London 2012 Olympics, a bronze medal at the Rio 2016 Olympics and a gold medal at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, were in a safe in a house on the 25000 block of Black Horse Lane , when she died on April 27, 29, said Orange County Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman Carrie Braun.
The medals were being temporarily stored there when the burglary took place, she said. Braun declined to name the athlete who won them.
As of Thursday, no arrests have been made and the sheriff’s department is asking anyone who might have information to contact them.
Earlier this year, another player on the team, Jordyn Poulter, was the victim of a medal theft. Her gold medal at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics was stolen from the center console of her car in Anaheim. The medal was recovered after a woman found it in the rubbish behind her shop and contacted police. An Anaheim man was arrested in connection with the theft.
