A man named Luckey was less than lucky after he allegedly tried to sell two stolen golf carts.
Timothy M. Luckey, 21, of Old Town, was arrested Thursday by Levy County deputies after they said he tried to sell two golf carts that had been reported stolen from the Chiefland area.
Luckey is accused of trying to sell the carts to a businessman who sold a replacement golf cart to one of the victims.
According to court records, Dan Maeder, of Dan's Custom Carts, received a call from Luckey about two golf carts that Luckey wanted to sell. Maeder told Luckey to bring the carts to his business so he could look at them.
While waiting for Luckey to arrive, Maeder called deputies and called a man who had bought a replacement cart from Maeder to replace the golf cart the man said had been stolen from his home outside Chiefland.
Deputy Tom Martin said that when Luckey was asked about the golf carts, he initially claimed they belonged to his mother. Martin said Luckey later admitted to his involvement in stealing the carts to sell because he needed the money.
Luckey was being held Monday at the Levy County Jail in Bronson on multiple charges including dealing in stolen property, grand theft and burglary. His bond was set at $120,000.
