ND Falls Prey To Interstate GRAND THEFT GOLF CART! (GALLERY)
Combining Fathers Day, The Fast and the Furious, and Caddyshack- this story truly has it all...and more.
Well, maybe not "more"...but let's start with what we got.
Nationwide, golf carts have been going missing. "Putting" away in the wee hours and leaving heartbroken course owners with nothing but memories of that sweet little beep-beep sound they once made when backing up.
North Dakota would not be immune to this wave of cart snatching. The investigation began two years ago when the Cass County Sheriff's Department pulled out their mulligan and called the FBI after at least 70 golf carts in North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, and Wisconsin had been whisked away without a trace. Taken in pairs under the cover of night, these carts were taken across state lines and fenced to unscrupulous golf cart black marketers who unloaded them to unwitting duffers at a surprisingly reasonable price.
Insurance covered it- so who really got hurt? Well, it's a good thing the Feds don't think that way. They took it personal and they got their golf snatchers...
It's always the folks you would least expect. The family that steals together eats meals together.
That's not true...sometimes it's a guy that looks exactly like an alleged golf cart thief.
Meet Nathan Rodney Nelson. This alleged cart-napper was caught snooping around a Georgia golf cart dealer with burglary tools, extra serial number strips, and a 1-iron. He claimed to be golfing but authorities knew that NOBODY can hit a 1-iron. They linked him to 63 thefts going all the way back to 2017. That link there is from Golf Cart Daily News.com. Daily news? What?
