My Town Belding: New members of dive team recover stolen gun

BELDING, Mich.—The newest members of the Ionia County Dive Team recently got a chance to put their new skills to the test.

The Ionia County Sheriff’s Office says on July 12, divers were deployed into a lake off Bridge Street in Belding to try to locate a stolen gun.  It took the team about an hour to recover the 1911 Colt Pistol, which had been taken from an Ionia County resident.

The dive team recently added 11 new members, including three from the Ionia County Sheriff’s Office, three from the Lyons-Muir Fire Department, three from the Belding Fire Department, one from the Ionia County Posse and one from Ionia Public Safety.  The dive team normally responds to water rescues, evidence and body recoveries.
