    A U.S. Olympic figure skater had two pricey costumes and her skates stolen from a rental SUV when while visiting San Francisco.

    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.
