Charlotte County Sheriff's deputies arrested an 11-year-old boy for stealing a golf cart just before noon Monday.
Michael Gage Tanner Bennett, 27 Oakland Hills Court, Rotonda West, was charged with felony grand theft.
CCSO received a call at 11:40 a.m. from the manager of Rotonda Golf and Country Club, 100 Rotonda Circle, who reported he followed Bennett in his car after pro-shop employees saw a boy drive off with a $2,500 golf cart.
The manager got into his vehicle, located and stopped the cart and driver on Rotonda Boulevard West. Bennett jumped off the golf cart and ran into a wooded area but the manager chased and, caught Bennett and held him until deputies arrived.
Bennett was arrested and transported to the Charlotte County Jail where he was booked then released to a relative with a notice to appear in court to face the felony charge.
