According to the Canadian Press on Wednesday, Canadian Olympic gold medalist Brad Jacobs of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario had a precious ring stolen from a Boyle, Alberta motel room either on Friday, June 20 or Saturday, June 21. Jacobs was in Boyle, Alberta, located 163 kilometres north of Edmonton for a charity golf tournament.

The ring has the Olympic rings in the center, with the message "Olympic Champions 2014" and the message "Brad Jacobs skip". Jacobs was the skip for the gold medal winning Canadian curling team at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi.

According to police, the ring was not the only item that Jacobs had stolen. According to CBC News, Jacobs' wallet, cell phone, watch, and bracelet, that had been in the drawer of his motel room, had also been stolen. Jacobs believes the items were stolen while he was in the motel bar. Window screens were apparently located on the ground of Jacobs's motel room and one other room at the motel.

Since it was reported that Jacobs's had the aforementioned items stolen, his wallet has been found according to the Globe and Mail. But according to Jacobs, the cash that was in the wallet had also been stolen.

At the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Jacobs's team became the third straight Canadian curling team to win an Olympic gold medal in men's curling. Jacobs, along with third Ryan Fry, second E.J. Harnden and lead Ryan Harnden followed Brad Gushue's curling team that won a gold medal for Canada at the 2006 Olympic Winter Games in Turin and Kevin Martin's curling team that won a gold medal for Canada at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver.
