ST. GEORGE — A man was arrested Monday after allegedly breaking into a country club over the weekend and stealing nearly $30,000 in golf equipment.

On Sunday, officers were dispatched to the Bloomington Country Club after an employee called emergency dispatch reporting a break-in at the business. Officers arrived to learn that over $29,000 in golfing supplies had been stolen from the business, much of which belonged to nine club members.

According to the probable cause statement filed in support of the arrest, emergency dispatch received a call on Monday reporting that an individual, later identified as 30-year-old David Bird, was attempting to pawn several sets of golf clubs that were suspected to be stolen, based on information received by the pawnshop following the burglary reported over the weekend.

When officers responded to the pawnshop, they found 20 golf clubs and a range finder that Bird was attempting to pawn, but the transaction had yet to be completed.

Bird initially told police the clubs belonged to him but later changed his story and said they did not belong to him, according to the report, adding that he was asked to sell the clubs by a friend who had no photo ID.
