Two Australian men in town for the Masters Tournament say more than $4,350 worth of golf equipment was stolen from their rental car late Wednesday.
On Thursday, police met with Timothy Prest, 45, of Manly West, Australia, who told them that two sets of golf bags and clubs were stolen from their rented Dodge Grand Caravan, according to a Richmond County Sheriff’s Office incident report.
Prest told police that he and Lindsay Alan, 55, of Mount Pleasant, Austrailia, were renting a home in the 1000 block of River Ridge Road for the week of the tournament, and that the van was locked at the time of the incident.
Also stolen was a Nikon camera valued at $200 and two watches worth more than $5,700.
Police found no damage to the vehicle except for a plastic part that attaches to the interior of the rear door, which was found in the rear passenger seat.
