On Saturday, July 2, 2016, the Logan County Sheriff’s Department responded to a report of a stolen Club Cat golf cart from the Corinth Market on Hwy. 100 (Franklin Road). When Deputy Billy Poole arrived on scene, Laura Miller stated that she rode her golf cart to the store early that morning to start getting ready to open. Sometime between 4:30 and 5:30 a.m. someone had taken her golf cart that was parked in front of the store.
A trail camera Miller had set up to monitor the front of the store captured three white males in front of the store during the time period the cart went missing. One of the individuals was identified as Brandon Pulley, 34, of Auburn. During the next few days the other two individuals were also identified as Dakota Hadden, 24, of Stuart Chapel Road and Raymond Thomas, 34, of Sportsman Club Road.
On Sunday, July 10 at 10 p.m., deputy Poole received a phone call from Captain David Kitchens of the Logan County Sheriff’s Department stating that Hadden had brought the stolen golf cart to the Sheriff’s Department in an enclosed trailer.
Deputy Poole went to the sheriff’s department to interview Hadden about the stolen golf cart. After the interview Hadden was arrested and charged with theft by unlawful taking over $500 and receiving stolen property. The next day Monday, July 11, deputy Poole located Pulley and arrested him for theft by taking over $500. Both were lodged in the Logan County Detention Center.
Deputy Poole attempted to find Thomas, but was unable to locate him. An E-Warrant was submitted to the Logan County Attorney for Thomas.
During the investigation deputy Poole and deputy Laura Hadden noticed two kayaks behind Dakota Hadden’s residence on Stuart Chapel Road, but at the time did not know they were stolen. Upon further investigation deputy Poole learned that the two kayaks were stolen as well from Simpson County. Upon questioning Hadden he stated he did not know the kayaks were stolen. Hadden was arrested for a second time for receiving stolen property.
