Go-Karts Stolen: Crime Stoppers Offers Up To $2,000 Reward

Greensboro Shrine Club Searching For Stolen Go-Karts

GREENSBORO, NC -- Crime Stoppers is offering up to $2,000 for information leading to the arrest of the person who stole a trailer full of go-karts.

Deputies say the go-karts were stolen from the Greensboro Shrine Club sometime between Wednesday night and Saturday morning. 

Randy Powers who is with the Guilford County Sheriff's Office and is the President of the Greensboro Oriental Shrine Club, said the go-karts, like the one in the picture below, were supposed to be used in a parade to raise money for children's hospitals.

Members of the club noticed the trailer was gone when they were preparing to go to a parade Saturday morning.

Powers estimates the trailer and the karts inside are worth around $40,000-$45,000. Each kart costs around $3,000 and 10 go-karts are missing. The trailer itself is an estimated $10,000-$15,000.

The trailer is white with large graphics on the sides that say “OASIS SHRINERS”, “NASCARTS” and “GREENSBORO, NC.”  One of the go-carts is designed to look like the character “Lightning McQueen” from the 2006 movie “Cars.”

The Guilford County Sheriff's Office is helping out with the investigation. Deputies say if you see a trailer similar to the one below, call police or the sheriff's office at 336-641-3690.
