Hey That Club is Mine!

BREMERTON, Wash., June 6 (UPI) --A Washington man may have to cancel some of his tee times after he was arrested for allegedly stealing $9,200 worth of clubs and other gear.

The "golf addict" is accused of taking more than 50 clubs from the pro shop at Gold Mountain Golf Course.

According to the Bremerton Police Department, the man tried to sell some of the stolen gear online, leading to his arrest.

The 26-year-old's apartment allegedly contained "golf paraphernalia, photos of himself playing golf and a hat reading "Born to Golf, Forced to Work" in addition to some of the stolen equipment.

He was booked into Kitsap County Jail for investigation of trafficking in stolen property and burglary.

"Burglaries are often the result of addictions -- drugs, alcohol or gambling," Bremerton Police Chief Steve Strachan said in a press release. "I think this is the first one we have seen that looks like a golf addiction."

The unemployed suspect has played golf at Gold Mountain at least eight times in the past year.
