GAINESVILLE ‒ Daniel Deon McNair, 25, was arrested on Monday, April 3, after allegedly selling a stolen golf bag and golf clubs to Play it Again Sports. McNair is also facing other sworn complaints for burglary and theft and is currently on probation for armed burglary and other charges.

On Feb. 27, McNair allegedly brought the golf clubs, valued at $1,000, to Play It Again Sports and sold them for $60. The store manager later positively identified him in a photo line-up, and the store video reportedly clearly showed McNair in the process of selling the equipment to Play It Again Sports.

A sworn complaint alleges that McNair stole about $8,800 in equipment, including a remote-control car and a large amount of associated equipment and parts, from a parked car on Jan. 24, 2022. The victim reportedly found the equipment for sale online and a Gainesville Police Department officer watched nearby while she bought it back from McNair for $300.

Another sworn complaint alleges that McNair took a wallet from a parked car on Feb. 12, and then attempted to make a purchase with cards from the wallet. That complaint also mentions allegations of fleeing and eluding in a stolen vehicle on Jan. 15 and another burglary on Feb. 6.

McNair has five felony convictions and has served one three-year prison sentence for Alachua County charges that include armed burglary and theft. He was released in April 2022 and is currently on probation in that case.

Bail was set at $35,000 on the charges related to the golf clubs and Judge Susan Miller-Jones ordered him held without bond for violation of probation.
