Curler's 2014 Olympic ring stolen during visit to rural Alberta town

BOYLE, Alta. - A member of the Canadian men's curling team that won gold at the Sochi 2014 Olympics has had his champion ring stolen.

Mounties say the ring belonging to Brad Jacobs was stolen from a motel room in Boyle, Alta., on either June 20 or June 21.

Jacobs was taking part in a charity golf tournament in Boyle at the time of the theft.

The ring has a square face that is curved around the edges and has the Olympic rings in the centre.

The face of the ring is inscribed with the words "Olympic Champions 2014" and on the inside engraved with "Brad Jacobs Skip."

Other personal items were also stolen, police said.

"The ring has a great amount of sentimental value to Mr. Jacobs," said RCMP Const. Alex Ayres. "While we continue to investigate the theft, our hope is that the ring be reunited with Mr. Jacobs.

"We are seeking the public's assistance in its recovery."
