Stolen Championship Boxing Belt Sparks Annapolis Investigation

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJZ) —  Anne Arundel County Police are investigating a strange robbery in Annapolis. 

On March 8, 2012, at approximately 2:05 p.m., officers responded to a residence in the 100-block of South Winchester Road in Annapolis for a burglary.

The homeowners reported that they came home and saw someone had gained access to the home while they were away. There was no indication of a forced entry into the home, but numerous items were discovered missing, including a 24 karat gold middleweight championship boxing belt.

The belt, a family heirloom weighing approximately seven to nine pounds, is a British Empire “Lonsdale” belt named after Lord Lonsdale of Great Britain and has his picture in the middle.

An older model faded red vehicle occupied by two males was observed in the area the day of the incident and is a vehicle of interest in this investigation. At this time, the investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information is asked to call 410-222-6145 or Metro Crime Stoppers At 1-866-7LOCKUP.
