Three armed robbers stole the congressman’s car while he was parking, Jacob Hochberg, Cuellar’s chief of staff, said in a statement. Cuellar was unharmed in the incident, and law enforcement eventually retrieved the car.

“Thank you to Metro PD and Capitol Police for their swift action and for recovering the Congressman’s vehicle,” Hochberg said.

U.S. Capitol Police are investigating the case with the help of the city’s Metropolitan Police Department. Investigators are still working to track down the suspects, according to the USCP spokesperson. Texas Tribune
