The Ingham County Sheriff's office evidence room looks like something of a pro shop--Callaway, Taylormade, Ping. There are more than 150 clubs recovered from a secondhand store in Lansing. They are suspected stolen.

"It's high end equipment," Undersheriff Allan Spyke says. "Our detective were reviewing pawn sheets and noted an inordinate amount of golf equipment being pawned by one individual."

That individual, a former Lansing cop, was an employee at both Dick's Sporting Goods at Eastwood Towne Center in Lansing Township and Indian Hills Golf Course in Okemos. The clubs, detectives believe, may have been taken from both.

"We're checking to see if there is more out there," Spyke says.

The suspect has been questioned, but not arrested or charged. A joint team of investigators from the sheriff's office and the Michigan State Police are looking into the larceny, and other crimes. Charges would be up to the Ingham County prosecutor. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
