North Vancouver RCMP say a local high school principal with an eagle eye recently scored a hole-in-one when he spotted a stolen set of expensive golf clubs.
The principal spotted the set of Callaway clubs wedged under a bus in the school parking lot.
"An officer searched our police database and found a flag for 'Callaway' on a burglary report," said Sgt. Peter DeVries of the North Vancouver RCMP. "Burglary cases are not always resolved in such a fair way," he said. "When we are able to return stolen property to its rightful owner, we try to bring that story to the fore. It's lucky this principal was so on the ball."
DeVries acknowledged the happy ending is not exactly par for the course.
The investigation into the burglary continues, said DeVries, and officers are hoping for a break in the case.
Meanwhile, RCMP are offering some suggestions to help avoid getting teed off by burglars, including closing blinds and curtains at night so a burglar can’t scope out your belongings, locking doors and windows and putting lights on timers to make it look like someone’s home when you’re away.
