Stolen golf cart damages sign outside of restaurant
Covington Police

COVINGTON, Ga. – A golf cart stolen from behind one downtown restaurant was found parked in front of another downtown restaurant Saturday morning with a Bible and a broken sign inside.

According to a Covington Police Department incident report, the owner of the golf cart contacted police just after 11 a.m. Dec. 15 and reported that he had located his golf cart parked on the curb in front of Amici’s restaurant on College Avenue. The owner told police he had last seen the cart the night before parked behind the Bread and Butter Bakery on Monticello Street.

The cart was reportedly backed onto the curb with the front tires still in the street and the back tires on the sidewalk. A wood chalkboard sign in front of Amici’s had been damaged and was inside the cart. According to the report, it appeared that the cart had been hotwired, along with other damage.

In addition to the Bible, police also found a grey t-shirt and a business card that did not belong to the cart’s owner.
