WGNS has more news on the theft of a golf cart that occurred in Smyrna on August 5th. Evidently, the young man allegedly stole the cart from the Smyrna Municipal Golf Course and either drove it into Mt. Juliet, or had it hauled to Mt. Juliet. Regardless, the city owned golf cart ended up on the opposite side of J. Percy Priest Lake, about 10-miles away from the golf course. The cart was found abandoned in the area of Couchville Pike and Cornith Road.

It is not known why the subject allegedly stole the golf cart and took it for a leisurely country drive to Mt. Juliet, Tennessee?


After Smyrna Police positively identified the suspect, the golf cart bandit was located and charged with Theft of Property and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. The man will have to face the courts in the near future to explain his recent trip to the golf course to the local judge.
