Police seek four who hurled golf balls at cars


Golf balls are hurled at cars; vandals sought

Police are looking for four people who hurled about 60 golf balls at parked vehicles from their Jeep Cherokee early Saturday. The incident happened in the Carlouel neighborhood in Clearwater Beach between 2:35 and 2:42 a.m. The passengers, police said, were hanging outside the windows of the 1990s model Cherokee, randomly tossing golf balls at several vehicles and damaging at least nine. The vehicle's lights were off as it cruised the neighborhood. The battered vehicles sustained thousands of dollars in damage, police said. Clearwater police have surveillance video — — of the incident but few leads. Anyone with information about the suspects or the mischief is asked to call the Clearwater Police Department at (727) 562-4080, then press 2.
