25-year-old Joseph Stubblefield was charged with aggravated burglary ten months after police verified that he pawned golf clubs which were reported stolen by his grandfather.

On November 11th, 2019, Goodlettsville Police Officer Stephen Hodges spoke with Donald Stubblefield regarding items stolen from his property. Donald advised police that he had to remove some items including a golf club from his vehicle in order to give his friends a ride to the airport. He stored them in the utility room of his home and when he returned home he went straight to bed. The next day he found damage to the exterior door of the utility room, and his golf clubs were missing. Donald reported that the missing golf bag contained a full set of irons, drivers, a putter, a range finder, golf balls, and a Bulova wristwatch. He stated that the total estimated value for the contents of the golf bag was $2,000 and that his grandson, Joseph Stubblefield, may be involved.

He told police that Joseph had lived with him previously, but had been evicted due to his drug addiction and previous theft of property. Officer Hodges searched Joseph’s full name in Leads Online to verify his pawn history and discovered that he had attempted to pawn golf clubs on November 7th, 2019 at Easy Pawn located at 840 Madison Square. Two days later Officer Hodges took photos of the golf clubs at Easy Pawn, and Donald Stubblefield was able to positively identify the items.

On September 7th, Joseph Stubblefield was arrested and charged with aggravated burglary. He is currently jailed in lieu of a $15,000 bond.
