Police looking into thefts from cars at Greenbrier Golf and Country Club
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Lexington police are asking for the public’s help in identifying three people accused of stealing from vehicles. Surveillance video shows them inside the parking lot of Greenbrier Golf and Country Club.
Greenbrier staff say this all happened Wednesday evening between 6:00 and 6:30 p.m.
“This is the first time we’ve ever had what seemed like a professional job where they’re going out of the way to blend in,” Josh Osborne said.
On surveillance video, you can see two men standing in between vehicles, decked out in polo shirts and khaki shorts as if they were going for a golf. Greenbrier employees say one of the men even walked around with a set of golf clubs.
“It seemingly worked because nothing really seemed like it was out place,” Osborne.
But it turns out the men were up to no good. Greenbrier staff say one of the thieves worked as a lookout and talked on a Bluetooth cell phone to someone likely in a getaway car. The other tested car doors and forced entry into at least five vehicles. The thieves were seen entering and leaving the parking lot in a small Mercedes SUV.
Club members reported cash and credit cards stolen from their vehicles.
Police are investigating.
“We want to remind everyone to be vigilant, lock their car doors and make sure everything is out of sight,” Osborne said.
Greenbrier also reached out to other golf clubs in the area to put them on alert.
Police are asking for the public’s help in identify the suspects.
