Sheriff: Deputies caught would-be golf cart thieves in the act
LEXINGTON, S.C. – Three men face multiple charges after Lexington County deputies arrested them late Friday night in connection with an attempted golf cart theft.
Deputies responded to an Augusta Road golf cart dealership and spotted Rodney Valentine Bush, Terry Lee Hasker and Robert Lebron Switzer near a truck, trailer and golf cart inside a fenced area, according to an incident report.
“Dispatchers had told deputies it was a larceny in progress after a 911 caller reported the suspects were trying to drive away in a truck with a golf cart on a trailer,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “The three suspects are charged with burglary, grand larceny, criminal conspiracy and possession of burglary tools.”
Hasker and Switzer are being held in the Lexington County Detention Center. Bush has been released after posting bail.
