SUNBURY – A Sunbury man was arrested and is now jailed after stealing a golf cart from a local golf course and tried selling it to another man. Stonington state police say arrested was 35-year-old Joseph Kemper and is now in Northumberland County Jail on $200,000 bail for mid-January incident.
Troopers say the incident was first reported January 16 when Sunny Hills Golf Course reported a stolen golf cart. Troopers then were informed the golf cart was listed for sale on Facebook Marketplace – that led to Selinsgrove troopers recovering the stolen vehicle from a Middleburg home about a week later.
Troopers then interviewed the second victim whom Kemper sold the golf cart to, telling troopers he paid Kemper $1.800 for the cart and it wasn’t the first time Kemper tried to sell him a golf cart.
Troopers say Kemper is charged with receiving stolen property, theft by unlawful taking and theft by deception/false impression. They are also requesting $1,800 in restitution be made to the second victim.
