Sheriff’s Department Closing In On Suspected Fuel Thieves

A phone tip has put the Scotland County Sheriff’s Department hot on the trail of the thief or thieves that struck at the Timber Ridge Golf Course on Wednesday, October 22nd.

According to Deputy Brian Whitney, an individual or individuals stole an undisclosed amount of fuel from the golf course storage tank sometime during the evening of October 22nd or early morning of October 23rd.

Investigators are asking any motorists that may have noticed suspicious traffic at the golf course, located on Highway 15, just south of Memphis that evening to contact the sheriff’s department at 660-465-2106.

Evidence was collected at the scene and additional information came in the form of a citizen’s tip.

The thief or thieves used a golf cart to haul the stolen fuel in a trashcan from the tank to the parking lot where it was loaded and removed from the crime scene.
