Grove City police said a McDonald, Ohio, man called on May 4 to report his stolen golf clubs, valued at $5,000, had been sold to a business in the 2200 block of Stringtown Road.
The man told police his golf clubs were stolen the night of May 3 and 4 from his car while it was parked in Columbus, according to reports. He said he received a message from the business notifying him his clubs were there. The store was able to contact the victim after finding his name on the clubs.
A store employee told police that at 6:30 p.m. May 4, a man came in carrying a golf bag with clubs, reports stated. The man, who was accompanied by two women, said he wanted to sell the clubs and the store offered him $200. He accepted the offer, but said he did not have identification needed to complete the transaction. One of the women offered to use her identification and the sale was completed, according to reports.
The man provided a phone number to the store. Police called the number but the man did not respond or return calls. Officers were able to identify the woman who had provided her information by viewing a surveillance video. Their attempt to contact her was unsuccessful.
Police filed warrants on felony charges of receiving stolen property through Franklin County Municipal Court.
