Lee told NBC Bay Area that he left the medals in the car because he was planning to take them to a friend's house to show their family.
Sunday morning, San Antonio Police Chief Bill McManus also tweeted out the surveillance video.
Ten hours later, he announced that the backpack and the medals were recovered.
"Well, that didn’t take long… looks like we recovered the backpack with the medals!! More on that tomorrow," McManus said in a tweet.
