When the four men noticed the arrival of the Police, they tried to flee of the place, according to police sources consulted by the Télam agency.
It was in vain: the personnel of the Patrol Command asked for support and motorcycles from the local Police and thus they were able to reach the suspects, intercept and identify them.
The four men of 18, 23, 24 and 47 years old they were arrested and transferred to the local police station. Now, they face a cause for infraction to the article 205 of the Penal Code.
The Federal Court No. 1 of La Plata intervenes in the case. From the club they said that they still did not take a temper before what happened.
“It is tradition that on Mondays the golf courses are closed and then the caddies are allowed to play. Maybe they thought it was like Monday“Martinez said,
And he explained that on the golf course, when the golfers were arrested, “there several neighbors walking or walking because, being closed, many took it as a public park since it does not have perimeter fencing “.
