A man casually strolled into Belmar Golf Club on Wednesday afternoon, allegedly stealing an undetermined amount of cash from the register in the men's grill. The entire incident was captured on Belmar's video surveillance system.
According to police, the suspect is a black male around 20-to-25 years old. He's about 5 feet, 8 inches tall and weighs approximately 160 pounds. The video shows the suspect, dressed in a white shirt with blue stripes and blue jeans, entering the building through the men's locker room and then going behind the counter of the men's grill to the register. The suspect can be seen opening the register and removing the contents.
Belmar Golf Club's Director of Special Events, Jennifer Kennedy says the club's owner, Toby Keith, is offering a "considerable" reward for the capture and prosecution of the alleged thief.
"We want to get the word out that this type of criminal behavior won't be accepted," Kennedy said, "Toby's upset. It doesn't matter if you're a celebrity or a next-door neighbor, when someone comes in and steals something of yours it's infuriating...and so he's offering this reward."
