On Friday, August 14, Landings Security and Chatham Emergency Services (CES) responded to a residence on Mercer Road for a fire. The residents advised that they were running a woodchipper, and the carburetor clogged which caused gas to leak out onto the driveway. The gas ignited, sending flames across the driveway. CES extinguished the fire, and no injuries were reported.



Landings Security and Chatham County Police Department (CCPD) responded to a residence on Tidewater Way for a report of theft on Saturday, August 15. The resident advised that approximately 8-10 juveniles entered her home and stole $150 from her son’s bedroom. The juveniles left on golf carts prior to the arrival of officers. The resident further stated that some of the individuals were acquaintances of her son. CCPD is handling the case.

On Monday, August 17, Landings Security and CCPD were notified of a theft from a boat at Landings Harbor Marina. The theft occurred between late Saturday night (8/15) and early Sunday morning (8/16). The resident boat owner advised that two rods-and-reels valued at approximately $700 were missing from his boat. Security and Marina personnel reviewed video footage via the Avigilon camera system and witnessed two suspects taking the items from the boat and leaving the dock. A Swift911 alert with a link to the video of the suspects was sent out to the community in an effort to identify the two individuals.  The video footage was shared with CCPD, and they are actively investigating this incident. Security and Marina staff are actively engaged with residents about possible tighter controls at the Marinas to decrease perceived risks of guests using these facilities without their sponsoring resident.
