Officials accused Richard Brendan Globensky of taking and transporting items that were connected to the Masters golf tournament from Augusta, Georgia, to Tampa, Florida, WJBF reported.

The charging documents, shared by WRDW, alleged that Globensky started taking the items, worth millions of dollars, in 2009 and continued until 2022.

The U.S. Attorney said that Globensky knew the items he was transporting were stolen, converted and taken by fraud from Augusta National Golf Club.

If Globensky is found guilty, he may have to forfeit anything he may still have or any money he received from the items.

If the items can’t be found or if they are “commingled with other property,” then Globensky will have to forfeit substitute property, the court filing said, according to WRDW.

The case was filed in the United States District Court, Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division.
