They're teed off at Franklin Park, where somebody stole a golf cart

Boston Police report somebody hot-wired five golf carts at the Franklin Park golf course late Tuesday or early Wednesday. Police recovered four of them near the twelfth hole, but say the fifth remains missing.

The officer observed that the control panel of the carts had been ripped from where they were fastened and that the starters were hot-wired to get the carts moving. A Sawzall may have been used to cut the chain of the gate to the holding area.

If you see a golf cart puttering down the street, contact B-2 detectives at 617-343-4789 or the anonymous tip line by calling 800-494-TIPS or by texting TIP to CRIME (27463). Otherwise, the golf course could be in the hole for the $6,000 cost to replace the cart.
