Jen Lee, a three-time winner at the Paralympic Games with the US ice sledge hockey team, says his gold medals were stolen from his car over the weekend in Texas.

Lee posted surveillance footage on Saturday that appears to show a man smash the car’s window, swipe a blue backpack and run away.

All three of Lee’s gold medals were stolen, the athlete said in an Instagram post.

“This happened around 7:15pm today at The Rim parking garage in San Antonio, TX,” Lee wrote. “Just want to share this as I’m seeking for help and see how I can get my gold medals back.”
