Golf cart stolen from local veteran

After speaking with neighbors, Boyd learned a new grill was stolen from an adjacent yard about two weeks ago.

“I think it’s a shame that someone like my father, a veteran who gave so much for other people’s freedom, should have his taken away by a thief,” said his daughter Kristie. “I don’t guess you can shame someone like that but shame on them anyway.”

Boyd said the loss of the cart, an 1 2003 Club Car, is especially upsetting because it has sentimental attachments. He has owned the blue cart for nine years. The dogs and cart were spotted by a Sports Illustrated photographer and appeared in the 2013 swimsuit issue, part of which was photographed in Apalachicola .

“It just has a lot of happy memories tied up in it,” he said.

Ah La Cart golf cart rentals of Apalachicola has provided Boyd with a temporary replacement free of charge. He expects a settlement from his insurance company in about three weeks if the cart is not found.

Boyd said he would pay a reward for information leading to the return of the cart. If you can help, please contact the Apalachicola Police Department or contact Boyd directly at 653-8573.
