Spike of golf cart thefts on UC Berkeley campus

BERKELEY (KRON) — Police at the University of California at Berkeley have noticed a spike of golf cart thefts on campus, authorities announced Monday.

Most golf cart thefts are crimes of opportunity, police say, but can result in a felony charge even if the cart isn’t taken far.

In light of the rash of golf cart thefts, University police would like to remind residents of these crime prevention tips:

  • Always secure your vehicle, even if parking for brief periods
  • Remove keys from the ignition
  • Install a keypad lock which will disable the cart until the proper key code sequence is entered
  • Use a steering wheel lock, pedal lock or chain to secure the cart when parked

If you see a golf cart, don’t take it. Even though we all want to be like Marshawn Lynch.
