On March 9, 2015, at approximately 12:04 a.m., Oak Ridge police officers Grant Gouldie and Ben Higgins were dispatched to the Centennial Golf Course Clubhouse, 101 Centennial Bluff Blvd., Oak Ridge in reference to a burglary. During the investigation on scene by Officer Gouldie and Higgins, it was determined a glass door was shattered and a set of golf clubs were missing.
Golf course employees who arrived to turn off the alarm were also interviewed, and video images of the burglary was reviewed and a suspect identified.
