By Sheriff Josh Brockman
Adair County Sheriff's Office

On Saturday, August 7, 2021, the Adair County Sheriff's Office received a complaint of suspicious activity on KY West 80 approximately 2.5 miles from Columbia.

Upon arrival, Deputy McCarol made contact with a Marion County man who stated that he was out of gas and was going to get some more and be on his way. The deputy observed a golf cart on the back of the truck with a sticker on the window that he was familiar with. The sticker was to the Green River State Park in Taylor County.

A call was made to the park manager, and it was confirmed that they were missing a golf cart. The cart was confirmed to belong to Green River State Park, and the suspect was taken into custody.

Joseph Wise, 35, of Marion County, was lodged in the Adair County Regional Jail by Deputy McCarol on charges of felony theft by unlawful taking over $500 but less than $10,000.

The Golf Cart, valued at over $5,000, was returned to Green River State Park.

The Sheriff's Office is continuing the investigation.
