A Jkher Production
You live next to a private, members only golf course. Your thirteen year old son, Theo, has discovered that he can collect balls that are lost on the course or in the water hazards (drowned balls) and clean them and sell them. Theo sets up outside a local flea market and sells the balls for five dollars a dozen. On a good collection day, Theo can find at least a hundred balls. The issue is that Theo has to trespass on the course in order to collect the balls. The course officials are concerned for his safety as well as the possible damage to the course. Theo has to enter the water hazards to find many of the balls. Theo has been chased off of the course by groundskeepers several times to the point where you were called. You told Theo that he was to stop trespassing on the course. The money was just too attractive to Theo and so he sneaked on to the course early one Saturday morning to collect balls. While there, Theo was playing around with some of the balls he found and with the course's practice markers. He was caught by the groundskeeper who was doing an early morning inspection of the greens.
You get a call this early Saturday morning from the course official. The course has decided to involve the police as they feel this is the only way to deter Theo once and for all.
How do you handle the situation?
