TNA's Stolen Heavyweight Championship Belt Recovered
TNA sources tell TMZ, the alleged belt-snatching took place on August 18th in Ottumwa, Iowa before a non-televised event while a stagehand was unloading props from his truck.
We're told the stagehand turned away for a split second, and one of the suspects grabbed the $6,000 belt -- along with a $400 replica -- and took off.
The two suspects were later identified by police using surveillance footage.
33-year-old Joel Luke and 39-year-old Forrest Jamison were arrested Wednesday before posting bail and being released. Luke was charged with 2nd-degree theft and Jamison was charged with accessory.
The belts have since been returned to TNA -- and somehow, the stagehand still has his job. more on this story
