On the Security Scene

Golf Cart Accident

On Wednesday, November 27 at approximately 8:30 p.m., TLA Security received a report of a possible golf cart accident on Landings Way North near Deer Run. The owner of the cart advised that his wife had struck the base of a large tree next to the cart path, damaging the front axle and wheel. Fortunately, there were no injuries. Safety cones were placed by the golf cart until it could be removed on Friday.

CCPD investigated the golf cart vs. vehicle crash which occurred at The Deck on November 25th and stated no charges would be issued against the unlicensed driver due to the traffic related incident occurring on Club (private) property.

Disturbing the Peace

Security received several reports of fireworks or possible gun shots in the Marshwood area near Joshua’s Retreat and Cane Patch Lane on Thursday, November 28. After patrolling the area for several minutes, the officer identified the source as confetti poppers being used by a small gathering at a nearby residence.


On Friday, November 29, a resident on Waterway Drive reported that several holiday decorations had been stolen from a display in his yard overnight. The value of the missing items (a wig, hat, and face mask) is unknown. The resident stated that he did not want to file a report with CCPD. Extra patrols are being performed in the area.

Suspicious Incident

Security received a report that several mailboxes were opened in the Franklin Creek Road South area on Saturday, November 30 at approximately 8 a.m. A patrol officer responded to the area and discovered 12 mailboxes in the open position. The officer closed all the mailboxes, and extra patrols are being performed in the area.


While patrolling the Moon River area, an officer noticed two dumpsters at neighboring properties had been spray painted with obscene graffiti. The officer spoke with a contractor performing work on site who stated that he would notify the general contractor. No suspects were identified, and extra patrols are being performed in the area.

Vehicle Accident

Security responded to the Oakridge Fitness Center parking lot on Monday, December 2 for a report of a vehicle accident without injuries between two residents. As one resident was backing out of a parking space, he clipped the other resident’s vehicle which caused minor damages to the front driver’s side bumper. Both parties declined to notify CCPD and agreed to work it out between themselves.
