·1 min read

RCMP in western P.E.I. have arrested several people in connection with the theft of a dozen golf carts from the Mill River resort.

The cart shed was broken into during the early morning hours Thursday. Police suspect the carts were taken out for joyrides.

Some of the carts were recovered on the Mill River property. Others were found in Howlan, O'Leary and as far away as Forestview, more than 10 kilometres to the west. Some of the carts and other property were damaged.

It's an unfortunate way to the golf season, but really at the end of the day, we're just very thankful nobody was hurt. — Mill River president Geoffrey Irving

Geoffery Irving, president of Mill River Resort, said it was a quiet night at the resort and staff didn't hear or see anything while the shed was being targeted.

"It's an unfortunate way to end the golf season, but really at the end of the day, we're just very thankful nobody was hurt," Irving said.

He said they are still tallying the cost of the damage.

Charges pending against the people arrested include breaking and entering, theft over $5,000, and mischief over $5,000, according to a news release issued Monday by the West Prince RCMP detachment.
