Jordyn Poulter, a member of the U.S. Women’s Volleyball National Team, had her stolen Olympic gold medal from the Tokyo Games found in Southern California.
After Poulter found her car had been broken into in an Anaheim parking garage, the setter reported the medal as stolen at the end of May. Police detectives later detained a suspect in the robbery, but they were unable to find the stolen medal right away.
However, earlier this week, according to a statement from the police, the proprietors of a barbershop in Anaheim reported discovering the gold medal inside a plastic bag left outside their place of business. They gave it to the authorities, who’ll give it back to Poulter. According to officials, the 31-year-old suspect is accused of breaking into homes and vehicles, stealing identities, and possessing illegal drugs. Also, as per the police’s statement, the suspect, who’s a resident of Anaheim, has a long criminal history.
