JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Vandals are breaking into golf clubs and apartment complexes in a Southside neighborhood.

Earlier this week, three golf courses were hit, as well as two apartment complexes. In all the cases, the same things were stolen, money and golf carts. 

It's usually a place people come to relax and work on their golf game, but now these golfers are a little more on high alert after vandals hit three different courses near Hodges blvd. Windsor Parke Golf Club was one of them. General Manager Mark Casper says they stole golf carts and money. "They came in on the side of the building and kicked in the door and rummaged around."

What the suspects didn't realize is that it was all caught on tape. The video is already in police hands, but there are security cameras at the club that patrol every area.

Two other golf courses were also hit, Glen Kernan Country Club and Jacksonville Golf and Country Club. "Initially, I thought it was kids on a joyride causing damage, now it's showing it may be more," said Casper.

In both cases the same things were stolen, golf carts and money. "It makes you wonder why you attacked a particular industry," said Casper.

That's a question without an answer, right now, but it's not stopping golfers from working on their game and Casper says the people doing this won't be free forever. "We've had people come and do damage before and they've been caught and either gone to jail or paid hefty fines, so I'd watch what I do next."    

It wasn't just those three golf courses that were hit. Two other apartment complexes in this area, Cape House and Country Club Lakes also had their offices broken into. Again, money stolen, as well as a digital camera and other office equipment. Right now police don't have any description of possible suspects.
