YORK Deputies followed fresh tire tracks on a York golf course to find and arrest a trespasser collecting golf balls to sell.

The York County Sheriff's Office was called to Carolina Crossing golf course one night late last week in reference to a "suspicious man" with a moped in the parking lot, according to a police report.

The deputy noticed fresh tracks in the dew on the grass of the golf course, and followed the tracks until he saw someone hiding behind trees.

The suspect, identified as David Clinton Burris, 46, of Gastonia, N.C., was carrying a duffel bag and told the deputy he was looking for golf balls to sell, the report states.

Burris was arrested and charged with trespassing. Officers also found marijuana in a toboggan under the seat of his moped, so Burris was also cited with possession of marijuana, according to the report.
