Police say Olympic figure skater Michelle Kwan’s car was stolen after her husband, Rhode Island gubernatorial candidate Clay Pell, left the keys inside.
Police said Pell and Kwan were scheduled to attend an event Tuesday along with others when he dropped the car keys between the seats of her Toyota Prius, parked outside the couple’s East Side Providence home. Pell could not easily reach the keys so closed the car door and left with Kwan in another vehicle.
Police said the couple didn’t notice her car missing until the next morning. The couple drove around the neighborhood looking for it before reporting it stolen Wednesday.
Kwan is a five-time world champion and double Olympic medalist. Pell faces two other Democrats in the state primary.
