Man accused of stealing Archie Bradley’s golf clubs arrested
On Thursday afternoon, the Scottsdale Police Department arrested the man who allegedly stole Diamondbacks reliever Archie Bradley’s golf clubs more than a week after they originally went missing.
Andrew J. Burtoni, 32, was arrested by the Scottsdale Police Department near his home in Mesa at around 3:00 p.m. on Thursday.
Bradley’s clubs were taken on Jan. 30, when he was playing in the Waste Management Phoenix Open Pro/Am.
According to police, the clubs were recovered on Jan. 31 in Gilbert and returned to Bradley on Feb. 3
At one point, Bradley believed that he had found his golf clubs for sale on the auction site OfferUp soon after they were stolen, but it turned out to be a fake post using a picture of his clubs taken on an earlier date.
The D-backs pitcher got his golf bag back on Monday and tweeted a picture with it.
