ATLANTA (AP) - Police say they’ve arrested two men after skis and other equipment belonging to a U.S. National Ski Team member were stolen in Atlanta.

Dani Loeb and her supporters have been pleading for the thieves who stole her gear to return it, saying the $1,600 skis give her the best possible chance to qualify for the Winter Olympics in Beijing.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the skis - along with U.S. ski team bags, a uniform, her helmet and other gear - were stolen from her mother’s pickup truck in a parking deck Dec. 15.

Loeb, who is from Alabama, is now waiting to hear from investigators whether the skis were recovered.
