Unaccompanied Fishing

TLA Security issued two warnings for unaccompanied fishing in lagoons and one fine for unauthorized fishing in the Landings Harbor basin. TLA staff are working with local Coastal Conservation Association Volunteers to increase awareness and compliance with the unaccompanied fishing rule as well as looking at options and possible future programs to preserve fishing in our lagoons.

Community Path Incidents

A cyclist on the community path behind Wiley Bottom exited the community path as a golf cart was approaching him. Upon attempting to return onto the path, his front tire caught the lip of the concrete and caused him to fall. Medical attention was later received, and no major injuries were sustained. Public Works personnel were dispatched to inspect the area and remediate any potential safety issues.

On March 28, TLA Security was notified of an interaction between a cyclist and a golf cart driver on the community path. According to the cyclist, the cart driver did not appear to be slowing down or yielding as the golf cart approached him. As he stopped his bicycle, a verbal interaction ensued between him and the cart driver. The cart number was identified and the parent of the young lady, who has a driver’s license, driving the cart was advised of the incident.

Ding-Dong Ditch

On March 31, TLA Security responded to a few Ding Dong Ditch calls on Monastery Road and Pettigrew Drive. Ding Dong Ditch is when a person, reasonably assumed to be juveniles, rings the doorbell or knocks on a resident’s door and then runs away before the resident can answer the door.
