Two Juveniles Suspected in Multiple Golf Cart Thefts
During the morning hours of September 14th 2014, Hemet Police Officers took theft reports of four separate golf carts that had been stolen from the 600 block of N. Kirby St. The victims reported that the carts had been stolen sometime between the night hours of September 13th and early morning hours of September 14th.
At about 1:00 pm. a concerned citizen called the City of Hemet Police Dispatch Center to report that there were some suspicious subjects driving a golf cart in the area of Dublin Ct. and Copenhagen St. The citizen was able to provide a description of the subjects and a location where they had gone. City of Hemet Police Officers responded to the area and located the subjects in the 3400 block of Dublin Ct. The responding officers knew of the golf cart thefts the night before and detained three subjects for further investigation.
The investigation is ongoing however; at the time of this writing, three of the four stolen golf carts have been recovered as well as items such as battery chargers that are believed to have been stolen from other victims. So far, two juvenile suspects have been arrested and their names are being withheld.
