No new information in golf club burglary
Are there any updates on that golf course burglary from last month?
— Via email
Negative, but that Feb. 18 incident is still very much under investigation, the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department said. Multiple golf clubs are still at large.
A male suspect made off with 13 clubs during an early morning burglary at Centennial Golf Club in Medford.
Surveillance video showed a suspect using a window punch — a sharp tool with an almost needle-like point — to break in through a back door on the facility club house’s northern side. The stolen clubs were all drivers of various brands worth about $4,500.
The property has not been recovered, and no arrests have been made.
“Our standard is to check for pawned items, and that sometimes works out,” said sheriff’s department spokesman Mike Moran. “At this point, though, no new information has come forward.”
Suspect information is limited. Surveillance video showed a male suspect wearing a white over gray-colored windbreaker jacket with the hood tightly drawn, blue jeans, white tennis shoes and gloves.
Anyone with information can call the sheriff’s office at 541-774-6800.
“They have heard somebody talking. They may have recently purchased some high-end golf clubs for a pretty remarkable price. There might be a reason for that. Maybe it’s a connection to the case,” Moran said. “If they’d like to let us know about it, we’d be more than happy to talk to them.”
