Criminals have worn out welcome

Whoever is responsible for the recent outbreak of property thefts should consider moving on – they have clearly worn out their welcome.

Thousands of dollars of damage was done to the seventh green at the Kettle Valley Golf Course overnight on Monday by thieves who also stole tools and other items from the shop. The golf club was hit the next night as well

You’ve no doubt heard of the TV show America’s Dumbest Criminals. I think if the criminals who have been violating the peace and security of the West Boundary for the past little bit don’t have the sense to realize when enough is enough, then maybe they need to be tuned in to the obvious.

A word of advice: leave town and don’t come back. There is a proverbial line drawn in the sand and these thieves may have overstepped by a large margin.

The golf course has been open for only a few days and the same gang has hit them. Twice!

A lot of local people golf—they get an itch that starts sometime in mid-January, and the only thing that is going to satisfy the itch is a few good rounds of golf when spring finally rolls around.

Then along come these bozos who think it’s cool to steal from honest, hardworking folk and— just to add insult to injury—they made sure to needlessly drive a vehicle across a putting green on both nights they raided the course.

They were after the stuff at the shop and obviously the golf course shop is not placed in such a way that the only access is across a green.

So these idiots had best figure out they have totally worn out their welcome in the West Boundary.

As mentioned above, a fair number of local people appreciate that golf course.

So you better move on—you don’t want to get caught on a dark night by some vigilant golfing fanatic with a nine iron out behind a lonely rural shed that you were breaking into.
