Vandals cause nearly $12K in damage at Pine Lake

Mint Hill Police responded to Pine Lake Country Club on a call of breaking and entering and damage to property the morning of November 6.

Approximately 20 golf carts had been removed from the barn where they are stored and damaged. Apparently, the suspects removed each golf cart, taking them onto the golf course, driving them recklessly, and returning the significantly damaged golf carts back to the barn.

Approximately $10,000 of damage was done to the 20 golf carts, $1,000 of damage to the landscaping of the golf course, and $800 to the cart storage barn. All golf carts are accounted for.

Anyone with information should contact the Mint Hill Police Department at 704-545-1085, and ask to speak with Detective Lezette.

Yet another school gets trashed

Butler High was the victim of vandalism in June.

Butler High was the victim of vandalism in June.

Providence High is the third victim this summer of high school property damage. Arsonists set fire to three sheds near the school’s softball field. Two sheds housed Panther football practice equipment and the third was used by the Matthews Athletic Association. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools estimated the fires caused roughly $31,000 in damage.

Security cameras at the school caught a dark-colored sedan on Providence school grounds that night.

Butler High and Northeast Middle were also vandalized earlier this summer. Perpetrators broke windows at the schools, and they destroyed televisions and computers at Butler. The damage at Butler and Northeast was an estimated $58,000.

No suspect has been named in either case. Please contact CMS police or Matthews police if you have any information.
