Golfer Loses $2665 In Clubs, Bag

A Coeur d'Alene Public Golf Course player learned a lesson about leaving his clubs lying around where someone could walk off with them. Dale Foss, 59, of Coeur d'Alene, lost $2665 worth of clubs, including a $400 driver and bag full of irons when he left them near the front door of the course clubhouse for about 2 hours after a round of golf. He left the bag at 2:30 p.m. Saturday while he practiced at the shooting range and putting green. At 4:20 p.m., he looked for the bag of clubs because he was concerned that they might get wet in the rain. He told police he had no idea who might have taken them.

Question: Has someone ever stolen sporting equipment from you?
