The warrant states the victim found the custom clubs listed on Facebook Marketplace, as he searched the website Thursday.

The seller of the golf clubs wanted to meet up at a location on Gallatin Pike North, according to the police report.

Officers said they tracked the sale and arrested the suspect at the meet-up location, finding the golf clubs in the back seat of his car, along with a scorecard that listed the victim’s name.

The seller, identified by police as 33-year-old Bruce Lee Duncan, was booked into the Metro jail Thursday night on charges of motor vehicle burglary and property theft. His bond was set at $2,000.
