On Wednesday, October 27, Security and Chatham Emergency Services (CES) responded to Landings Way South and Rookery Road for a bicycle accident. The resident was treated on scene for his injuries and did not require transport to the hospital. A second resident on scene advised that she was taking a right turn onto Landings Way South from Rookery Road, and after making the turn, she noticed the cyclist lying on the ground. The exact cause of the accident was not clear.

A resident contacted the Main Gate on Sunday, October 31, to report a hit and run accident between two golf carts on Camberwell Place. The resident stated that a golf cart was in the middle of the road and side-swiped his golf cart. It then kept driving and never stopped. The side mirror on the other cart was broken off during the incident and struck his passenger in the face. Unfortunately, the other cart number could not be obtained during the incident. Security patrols checked the surrounding areas for a golf cart missing a side mirror, but the cart was not located. Residents are reminded leaving the scene of an accident with injuries or property damage is a crime.

Dog Attack

On Monday, November 1, Security spoke with a resident on Wiley Bottom Road concerning an incident between a neighbor’s dog and her dog. The resident advised that she had taken her dogs outside around 8 a.m. the previous morning, and a dog from a nearby residence entered her yard and attacked one of the dogs. Her dog sustained multiple injuries and was taken to the emergency vet for care. The resident went on to explain that the same dog had attacked a different one of her dogs last winter, and the incident was not reported to Security or Chatham County Animal Services. The dog’s owner took full responsibility for the previous incident and paid for the vet care. Security attempted to contact the dog’s owner with negative results, and the case was turned over to Animal Services.

Security responded to a residence on Caisson Crossing for a report of possible vandalism on Friday, October 29.

After examining the area, the officer believed that a deer altercation occurred (it is mating season), which caused the damage and disturbance to the property. The residents were contacted with the findings.

The complainant reported seeing a woman wearing a heavy coat and backpack walking around their property on their security cameras. Security patrolled the area with negative results.

The officer secured the Marsh Tower, and the individuals left the area.

On Saturday, October 30, Security and Chatham County Police Department (CCPD) responded to a residence on Candlewicke Lane for a noise disturbance.
