Security Cameras Coming to Golf Club

Security Cameras Coming to Golf Club After Theft Spree

Later, police were able to confirm that a LaGrange Country Club employee had earlier that day had golf clubs stolen from his car, but had not yet reported the theft.

Herman claimed that thefts have occurred at a number of golf clubs in the Chicago area both this year and in years past, though this is a new occurrence at Riverside Golf Club.

“Every year this happens; it’s nothing new,” Herman said. “Once it occurs once, they will try again and again until they are stopped.”
