Carjackings at local clubs

STAMFORD, Vt. (NEWS10) – A dynamic criminal duo reportedly made off with more than $10,000 in cash and cards after items were stolen from country clubs in Vermont and Massachusetts. Troopers with the Vermont State Police first learned of the thefts on June 17, when they stole credit cards and cash from two separate cars at Stamford Valley Golf Course in Stamford, Vermont. The loot was allegedly used at a Wal-Mart in North Adams, Massachusetts for some sundries and $500 Apple gift cards.

Subsequent investigations revealed that similar thefts had taken place at the Mt. Anthony County Club in Bennington, Vermont, as well as country clubs throughout Berkshire County, Massachusetts. In those cases again, police said, the stolen goods were used to purchase $500 Apple gift cards at local Wal-Marts.

Video surveillance of Wal-Mart stores showed the same middle-aged man and woman, dressed in golf attire, driving a silver pickup truck and making the transactions, police said. Through all of the successful robberies, the suspects allegedly made off with more than $10,000 in cash and cards.

Vermont State Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying the people involved. Anyone with information about the break-ins is asked to contact Officer Nicholas Grimes at (802) 442-5421. Anonymous tips can also be submitted online.
