WESTMORELAND, VA. — A gang of thieves preying on property owners who use golf carts to get around has been sidelined by the Westmoreland Sheriff after the alleged dirtbags who stole the carts and allegedly took them off to West Virginia.

An extensive investigation conducted by the Westmoreland County Sheriff’s Office has resulted in the arrest of five individuals on 105 charges in reference to several golf cart larcenies that took place between July and September 2015.
