On the Security Scene

Vehicle Accident

Security, CCPD, and CES responded to Sundew Road for an overturned garbage truck on Friday, August 9. Upon arrival, the driver of the vehicle stated that he had been turning the corner when he noticed three deer running across the street which caused him to shift the vehicle’s direction. The sudden shift in direction caused the truck to flip onto its side. Although no injuries were reported, the two passengers were transported to the hospital for further evaluation per their company policy. The driver of the vehicle was taken into custody as he had an active warrant for reasons unknown, which we’re trying to verify. The vehicle was removed from the scene by a tow truck.


On Wednesday, August 7, a resident contacted Security to report a theft. The resident stated she owned a property on Waterway Drive and noticed that the For Sale by Owner sign was missing. She further advised that the sign had been on the property earlier in the day. Upon further investigation, it was determined that the sign had not been stolen but rather it had been removed by the Community Development Department for non-compliance with the established sign policy in the ARC Guidelines. The report was reclassified as an informative report, and the resident advised of our findings and ARC Guidelines.

On Monday, August 12, a resident on Hobcaw Lane reported a theft. She stated that a package containing a Christmas plate had been delivered to her address on Saturday, and when the package was retrieved later in the day, she discovered the box had been opened and the contents were missing. The resident advised that she had been in contact with the postal carrier who reported the box was intact at the time of delivery. CCPD was not contacted; however, the resident made a report with USPS. Extra patrols will be performed.

Suspicious Incidents

Security responded to the area of the Marshwood Golf Course hole #6 for a report of a juvenile with what appeared to be a rifle. Officers located the youth in the backyard of a nearby residence. Upon speaking with his parents, the officers learned that he had been in the backyard shooting targets with a BB gun and wandered off toward the road. His parents advised that they would speak with their son about the incident and assured officers that there would not be further occurrences.

On Saturday, August 10 around 12:45 a.m., Security responded to Lillibridge Crossing for a report of a suspicious person. The resident stated that she had seen a young male in the bushes at the back of the property. She advised that she believes the suspect is a teenager based on the sound of his voice as he yelled out before running off when she went outside with her dog. The resident further advised that she believes someone may have been in her home a week prior to this incident as her dog was not in his cage which is secured with two locks. She stated that the property was unsecured at that time and nothing appeared to be missing. Security checked the area with negative findings and will continue extra patrols in the area.
