Villager’s son arrested in theft of woman’s golf clubs at country club

Andrew Simpson

A Villager’s son has been arrested in the theft of a woman’s golf clubs from a golf cart parked at Mallory Hill Country Club.

The woman parked her golf cart at 12:45 p.m. June 18 at the country club and when she came out about an hour later, she found that her golf bag, containing her clubs and other personal items, had been stolen.

At 2 p.m. that same day, the golf clubs were pawned for $333 at Play It Again Sports in Leesburg.

The clubs and other items were valued at $4,314. The bag had contained a TaylorMade M6 driver valued at $500, two Cobra Hybrids valued at $200 each, one TaylorMade M6 3W valued at $400, four TaylorMade M2 irons valued at $200 each, a TaylorMade Hi-Toe sixty degree wedge valued at $200, a Bushnell brand range finder with a blue gel case valued at $300, 50 golf balls, a Columbia brand rain jacket and matching pants, and Bionic brand left-handed golf gloves.

A deputy obtained the receipt for the pawned items and found that 44-year-old Andrew Lawrence Simpson, who lives with his mother at 564 Richburg St. in the Village of Mallory Square, had provided his driver’s license when he pawned the woman’s golf clubs.

Simpson was arrested at his mother’s home on a charge of grand theft. He was booked at the Sumter County Detention Center on $2,000 bond.

In 2015, Simpson was arrested after impersonating a dentist and phoning in a fraudulent prescription at Publix for Hydrocodone in his mother’s name. He was sentenced to probation.
