Police Baffled Over Buggy



St Mary’s Police say no one has come forward to explain why a golf buggy was moved along Porthcressa on Tuesday.

It appears to have been pushed along the seafront from Sibleys to the other end of the beach and would have required someone in the driver’s seat, steering.

The owners’ keys weren’t taken and there’s no sign that it was hotwired, the process by which the ignition system is bypassed. The buggy wasn’t damaged.

Sgt Colin Taylor says there are clearly lots of these vehicles here and this is “a rare event.”

But Colin warns that, as well as theft, anyone driving a buggy without consent could be charged with failing to have insurance. That could bring a £200 fine and six points on their licence.
