Boy do I have some GREAT news! Yesterday the police went to a playerís home and recovered FOUR stolen baskets! They are now in our position and Eddie and I plan to reinstall them on a course in the NEAR future.
In the process of getting these baskets we got word of who stole some of the Muldraugh baskets. On that hunch I made a trip to Louisville and located a stolen basket in the back yard of a local player. I was able to take some pictures of them from a neighborís yard. If you know this person (and I KNOW that some of you who read THIS board do) I would suggest that you pass this message along to him and let him know that if he returns the baskets before next Monday I SWEAR that I will NOT get the police involved. If I havenít seen the baskets by next Monday I will be contacting the police and turning over the evidence that I have to them. Tell this person NOT to be stupid and just ditch the baskets somewhere. As I said, I have pictures of the stolen property in their yard. That enough to issue a warrant. Just return the baskets BEFORE Monday (3/9/09).
Call me, (502)345-0342, and let me know when theyíve been dropped off at Muldraugh and I SWEAR to you that I will NOT involve the police. If you drop them off and someone else steals them before Iím aware of them being returned, thatís still over your head and I will still turn over the evidence. When you call me, leave a message if I donít answer, and just say that the baskets have been returned and youíll never hear from me again. I would suggest setting them on #18ís tee pad or something so that they are not easily seen for someone just driving by to steal again.
