MOODY (February 21, 2014) An Arkansas man was held Friday in the McLennan County Jail charged in connection with the theft of golf carts in Central Texas and in his home state.
Roy Dennis Conner, 70, of Warren, Ark., was ordered held in lieu of bonds totaling $2,000, charged with two counts of theft more than $1,500 but less than $20,000, online jail records showed.
Senior sheriff’s Detective James Pack, who investigated the case, said Conner, whom he described as an avid golfer, was living in Moody with his now former girlfriend during a period when three golf carts disappeared from the Greenbrier Golf Club.
Pack said the manager at the golf course reported the first theft in July 2013, the second in December 2013 and the third on February 3, 2014.
Pack said he had no leads in the first two thefts, but said a surveillance video clearly showed a man stealing the third.
The course manager identified the suspect and Pack began looking for him.
Subsequent investigation led to a fourth stolen golf cart that was missing from a golf course in Warren, Ark.
It was found at the residence of Conner's former girlfriend in Moody, Pack said.
Pack said he’s now working to return the four carts to their owners.
