Stolen kickboxing belts returned

Adolpho Lozano, a local martial arts instructor, has been reunited with his world title belts that were stolen earlier this month.

  • Mar. 2, 2011 7:00 p.m.

Two kickboxing tournament belts, that were taken from Blackbelts in Lake Country on February 14, were recovered by police last week.

At 2:00 p.m. on February 23, police received a call from a woman, on Seaton Road in Lake Country, who stated that she and her boyfriend found a black garbage bag that had been left at the Canada Post mailboxes. They looked inside the bag and saw the two Championship belts, which they recognized as being the ones reported stolen. After taking them home, they called police.

The belts were returned to their shocked, but ecstatic owner, who was very happy to have them back.

The investigation continues with respect to a suspect(s) and charges.
