Kimberley RCMP are following up on a golf cart that was stolen from Bootleg Gap Golf Course on August 24.

A witness reported seeing the cart being driven up Highway 95A near St. Mary’s Lake Road in Kimberley around 7 p.m. on Aug ust 24 and notified golf course staff.  Checks found a cart was missing and contacted police.  Patrols conducted by golf course staff and police failed to locate the cart at that time.

The golf cart was located August 27 in the bush approximately 3.5 km up St. Mary’s Lake Road.  There was damage to the front end, likely a result of suspects attempting to drive it off road.

Police would be interested in hearing from witnesses who may have observed who was driving the cart or in what area.

The RCMP are continuing their investigation, but if you know who was operating the cart, please call Kimberley RCMP at 250 427-4811.
