A couple comes home Saturday night to discover a burglar sitting on a golf cart inside their garage.

Saline County Sheriff Roger Soldan tells KSAL News that homeowner Ray Smith called authorities just before midnight after opening his garage door to find 21-year-old Phillip Hamilton sitting on Smith’s golf cart.

As the couple entered the home they found a trail of destruction inside.

Deputies say Hamilton damaged the stove, refrigerator, an antique china hutch, door and drywall inside the home located in the 2600 block of North Niles Road.

A prescription of pain killers was also missing.

Damage is estimated at $3,391.

Hamilton is facing charges that could include burglary, criminal trespass and criminal damage to property.

Why did they not shot him in the head and let the sheriff’s office remove the body? These individuals need to be killed and hauled off and people who live in the county need to carry weapons because there is no one to protect them in Saline County.
