On Tuesday, October 6, Security and Chatham County Police Department (CCPD) responded to the corner of Brandenberry Road and Morning Marsh Lane for a report of a golf cart striking a mailbox and driving into some brush. Upon arrival, officers spoke with the driver of the golf cart, who refused medical attention. Officers detected what appeared to be the smell of an alcoholic beverage, and CCPD officers utilized a preliminary breath test (PBT) as the driver refused a field sobriety test. The driver was taken into custody and cited for DUI.

Domestic Disturbance

Security responded to a residence on Friday, October 2, for a medical emergency. Upon arrival, the officer learned that the call had been cancelled. While attempting to leave the area, she noticed an individual signaling for her to stop.

Security responded to a residence on Bray Lane for a report of a theft on Saturday, October 3.

Upon further inspection, she realized that a heat fan, brass hose fittings, and two hose timers appeared to be missing. The estimated value of the items is $150. There were no signs of forced entry, so it is believed that someone knew the code or happened to guess it. The resident already had replaced the missing items and changed the garage code.
