SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police are working to track down a man accused of stealing gold medals from a USA Paralympian after breaking into his vehicle overnight.

According to a Twitter post from Paralympian Jen Lee, his vehicle was broken into around 7:15 p.m. Saturday at The Rim.

The crime was captured on video surveillance, which was also shared on social media, showing a man approaching Lee’s vehicle and trying to gain access.

Lee said the man was successful and ran off with a bag containing all three of his gold medals.

“Asking for help getting them back n getting the word out in any way possible,” the tweet reads.

“This can’t stand,” McManus said in a tweet.

He also asked for the public’s help in identifying the suspect.
