Yamaguchi 'Emotional' After Van Break-in
KRISTI YAMAGUCHI is devastated after priceless items were stolen from her trailer during a recent stop on the DANCING WITH THE STARS tour across the U.S.
The Olympic champion figure skater - who won the 2008 series of the TV dance competition - left her valuables in a van, shared by her co-stars Mark Ballas and Derek Hough, while visiting in Roseville, Minnesota to take part in a cancer benefit.
Thieves reportedly took passports, diaries, photos and thousands of dollars worth of electronics during the break-in on Saturday (16Aug08).
Yamaguchi says: "I feel so bad. These guys (the dancers) came in for a good cause to help out - and it's not starting out so good. It's more emotional because there are so many memories."
A $5,000 (GBP2,500) reward has been offered for information leading to the return of the items.
