The men that stole the TNA Title belts were caught due to surveillance video. TMZ.com reports that the belts were stolen while a stagehand was unloading props from TNA’s truck and were later identified via video surveillance. The men were arrested on second-degree theft charges and released from jail after posting bond. The belts were returned to TNA. If you’re interested, you can click here to view their mugshots.
Here is the article from TMZ.com:
TNA’s heavyweight championship belt — valued at roughly $6,000 — was stolen earlier this month from right under a stagehand’s nose … but thankfully, the suspected thieves have been caught … with the help of TECHNOLOGY.
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.
