42 motorized golf carts reported stolen from dealer since March

November 17, 1993

County police are investigating the apparent theft of 42 motorized golf carts, worth a total of $27,800, from a Glen Burnie golf cart dealer.

The thefts from Eastern Golf Car Inc., in the 7000 block of Aviation Blvd., were reported Friday. They occurred between March 1 and Nov. 1, police said.

The company secretary, Norma Terry, said she discovered the 42 carts missing during a recent inventory.

Another employee told Ms. Terry that a former worker "had been periodically taking the golf cars and selling them," a police report says.

That employee, Ron Gale, said he accompanied the former worker to a pawn shop in Jessup.

The pawn shop, however, refused to give Ms. Terry any information, the police report says.

Police said all the golf carts were used and are worth between $100 and $2,040, depending on their condition.

11 diamond rings stolen from store

County police were searching yesterday for several men believed to have stolen 11 diamond rings worth more than $40,000 from a jewelry store in Marley Station mall Sunday.

Leah Kouroupis, the manager of Mark Douglas Jewelers, told police that four men came into the store, which was already crowded with about 20 other customers, between 3 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. Two of them "were continuously keeping a sales clerk busy while the other two were walking around in the store," Ms. Kouroupis said.

One of the sales clerks apparently left a showcase open, she said.

After the men left, Ms. Kouroupis noticed that a tray of diamond rings, including one worth $8,395, was missing. The other rings ranged in price from $999 to $6,695.

The manager could not give police a description of the men.
