A search for a stolen golf cart in Peachtree City led police to discover three juveniles in possession of the cart. Two of them were 12-year-old girls and the other, a 15-year-old boy.

An officer on July 29 was dispatched to a South Peachtree Parkway location in reference to a stolen golf cart.

The officer met with the victim who stated his E-Z-GO golf cart was stolen from outside his home.

Later that day, police received a report that three juveniles were seen in the cart, said Peachtree City Police Department spokesman Chris Hyatt.

Police were able to locate and recover the golf cart, Hyatt said.

Two of the juveniles on the cart were 12-year-old females. The third, a 15-year-old male, successfully ran from the scene and was not immediately apprehended, Hyatt said.

In another case, an officer on July 29 at approximately 9:06 a.m. responded to a Hyacinth Lane residence off Ga. Highway 74 North in reference to an entering auto report.

The complainant reported his pickup truck was entered overnight in the driveway, and the rear passenger-side window was busted out. No property was reported missing, according to the police report.

The wires underneath the steering wheel were pulled out and damaged, and the driver-seat was pushed all the way back, the report noted.
