Print More

But it turns out that 37 of the incidents involved golf carts, which are counted in the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reports in the auto theft numbers. “”We will continue to have an increase in golf cart thefts in the future as registered golf carts are close to 10,000 and climbing,” Police Chief Jim Murray told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
