The Sacramento Police Department has arrested a suspect who is believed to be linked to stolen go-karts from a trailer in the Hagginwood neighborhood of North Sacramento.

On Thursday, police received a report that eight go-karts were stolen near the 3200 block of Marysville Boulevard, while others vehicles were vandalized and damaged. Police said in an update that a person was taken into custody on Sunday, and that one of the karts was recovered. No other details were made available.

Authorities last week reported the missing go-karts are Nos. 1 through 5, as well as 8, 10 and 11. The karts can be identified by the numbers located on the floorboard, police said.

The amusement rides are said to have belonged to Cibara Motor Corps of the Ben Ali Shriners chapter in Sacramento.

A GoFundMe account was created to raise money to replace the stolen karts which are used in parades to promote awareness for the children of Shriner’s Hospital.

“These Go Karts are the most recognized in parades. Kids love it,” an affiliate wrote in a social media post shared by the Shriners. “Does it get any lower than this?”

Police are still seeking community assistance to help locate the remaining Go-Karts and have them returned to the rightful owner. Those with information, or leads, are encouraged to contact the Sacramento Police Department.
