Suspect arrested in theft of golf carts
By SUE WATSON
A Collierville, Tenn., man was arrested following the theft of two golf carts from Kirkwood National in Holly Springs June 22, according the sheriff Kenny Dickerson.
He said jail administrator Bobby Harris was on his way home from work the day the golf carts were taken and hidden in the woods to be picked up. Harris called deputies, who arrived at the scene of a suspicious cattle trailer and pickup parked on the side of the highway, Dickerson said.
Officers took note of the tag and the identity of the two men who were at the vehicle but did not know anything had been stolen, he said. The following day the owner of the golf carts reported the theft to police - that a man had called saying he had taken two golf carts, had second thoughts, and told the owner where the carts could be found in a corn field. The suspects had scouted the area and one suspect had stayed with the vehicle while the other went to get the golf carts, Dickerson said.
One of the suspects, Steven Walk, 32, of the 900 block of Hickory Oak, Collierville, Tenn., met with Maj. Kelly McMillen at the Byhalia substation to discuss the incident and was arrested September 7 and charged with grand larceny, the sheriff said. Walk was released on $5,000 bond.
The second suspect has not yet been brought into custody, he said.
Dickerson urges anyone who sees suspicious activity in their neighborhood to report information to Crime Stoppers at 800-729-2169 or to call the sheriff’s office at 662-252-1311. The theft of four-wheelers and burglaries of homes for theft of items such as shotguns usually escalate during the fall as hunting season approaches, he said.
