Two alleged thieves stole a golf club chairman’s buggy and drove it to McDonald’s in the middle of the night.
Retired prison governor Bruce Tait, 69, had left his £4,000 cart locked up in the club shed ready to take his three-year-old grandson on a tour of Richmond Golf Club in North Yorkshire on Bank Holiday Monday, but it was taken.
It later emerged that two men had driven it from Richmond to Catterick, five miles away, where they were arrested by police at a McDonald’s drive-thru shortly before 4am.
The buggy has now been returned to Mr Tait.
Police tweeted about the incident, saying: “A golf buggy was reported ‘driving’ through the drive through of a popular fast food chain in Catterick.”
