An increase in the theft of golf carts in San Pedro Town led the San Pedro Police Formation to host a meeting with concerned stakeholders. The meeting took place on Tuesday, October 25th at the Magistrate Court Room located on the second level of the police station. A handful of business operators, who are engaged in the golf cart rental business, attended the gathering to discuss the issue that is affecting their establishments.

Present at the meeting were Deputy of the Belize Police Department Coastal Executive Unit Henry Jemmott, along with Officer in Charge of the San Pedro Sub-Formation Superintendent Sandra Bowden. Bowden elaborated that the situation is escalating, and many of the golf cart rentals on the island have been affected. She suggested to the different stakeholders that it is important to have some sort of indications to their customers that would remind them to always lock their rented cart. The use of well-lit parking areas, particularly near areas with surveillance cameras, was encouraged. At the end of the presentation it was announced that the San Pedro Police Department will be reinforcing the quick apprehension, charging and remanding of anyone caught stealing golf carts. According to police, they cannot be lenient with criminals that are now engaged in this type of activity plaguing the island.

They are being stolen for parts. Working with mechanics would probably lead to the culprits.
