Trio Arrested for Theft at Twisted Oaks Gold Club

Three Hernando, FL residents were arrested by the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO), July 10, as the result of an investigation into the theft of numerous items from the Twisted Oaks Golf Club, located at 4801 N. Forest Ridge Blvd. in Beverly Hills, FL, that was reported on Thurs., July 6. The theft occurred sometimes between 6:00 pm on Wed., July 5, and 5:00 am on Thurs., July 6, when employees arrived to work.

Stolen items included 6 lawn mower gears 5 cast iron gear casings, a deep cycle marine battery, 7 auto batteries, an air compressor, and a 6-ft. single axle trailer. The estimated value of the stolen items is $3,495. The arrest reports stated that an empty beer can was found in the area where the items were taken, that was not there when employees left the area on July 5. Fingerprints were removed from the can. On July 10, the CCSO Forensics Unit informed a detective that the print was a possible match for Willi John Schroeder, III, 52, of Hernando.

The detective spoke with Schroeder in the driveway of his residence, where the stolen trailer was in plain view of the detective. The trailer was identified as belonging to the golf club by an employee.

Schroeder was charged with trafficking or endeavoring to traffic in stolen property, grand theft ($300 or more, but less than $5,000); with his bond set at $7,000. Two other suspects were arrested: Clinton Joseph Stevenson, 20, was charged with trafficking or endeavoring to traffic in stolen property, and grand theft ($300 or more, but less than $5,000), with his bond set at $7,000; and Julie Ann Smith, 43, (whom both Schroeder and Stevenson said was involved in the crime), who was charged with grand theft ($300 or more, but less than $5,000); her bond was set at $2,000.
