Everything from guns to pricey tech gadgets to urns with ashes inside have been stolen in San Francisco’s notorious epidemic of car break-ins. Now, add one-of-a-kind ice skating costumes to the list. Marissa Castelli, a pair skater who competed in the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia, was participating in the U.S. Figure Skating Championships in San Jose over the past week and spent Monday sightseeing in San Francisco before flying home to Rhode Island Monday night. The SUV her parents had rented was parked in Japantown while she and her family were at a restaurant eating ramen. When they returned after about 90 minutes, they found a window was smashed and several pieces of luggage were missing.
