Police seek suspects who dumped hazardous chemicals at Beavercreek golf course

Mar. 14—The Beavercreek Police Department is asking for the public's help in identifying individuals suspected of dumping hazardous chemicals at the Beavercreek Golf Club.

Just after midnight Monday, a vehicle described as a "silver or white 2019 — 2024 RAM pickup truck" drove onto the golf course near Forest Oaks Drive. The individuals inside the truck emptied a large construction tank containing hazardous liquids onto the course.

The chemicals were identified as automotive waste, including oil, transmission fluid, and/or radiator fluid, Beavercreek Police said Thursday. The Ohio EPA responded to the scene and took the necessary mitigation steps, and did not indicate that there was any danger to the public, police said.

Anyone who has information is urged to contact Beavercreek Police detective Ryan Stein at 937-427-5529, ext. 248, or

The Beavercreek Golf Club posted on its Facebook page that the organization "would greatly appreciate any assistance in identifying the person(s) responsible for damaging a hole on its course."

"We are still open and the hole is playable. We are diligently working toward restoring the affected areas. As always, we appreciate your support!" the club wrote.
