The theft of golf carts in San Pedro Town has left many islanders without their valuable vehicles. In most cases, cart parts are removed and sold on the island and reportedly even in other municipalities. Police investigations have led to the arrest and charge of Tyrone Chavarria. He was arraigned at the San Pedro Magistrate Court but is currently out on bail.
Police have placed collected evidence outside of their station on Pescador Drive, which consists of various cart parts, including roofs, seats, and wheels. Over the past weeks, several golf carts have been reported missing/stolen, affecting private and commercial owners. Most of the thefts reportedly happen at night. In most cases, the shell of the cart is found in bushy areas without the engine, batteries, windshield, and sometimes even the wheels are removed. The parts are sold to the black market, which continues to support this criminal ring of activities.Click here to read the rest of the article in the San Pedro Sun
