Physical Altercation

On June 21, Landings Security responded to an altercation between residents at The Landings Dog Park. The altercation occurred after a resident threw a frisbee for his dog, which resulted in several dogs chasing it and another dog eventually taking possession of the frisbee. A verbal altercation ensued and escalated to physical contact between two residents. Both residents were interviewed, and neither wanted to contact Chatham County Police Department (CCPD).

Suspicious Person

On June 21, Landings Security responded to a report of a suspicious person walking around the outside of a house at 9:30 p.m. Security spoke with the homeowner (via telephone) who stated the male was wearing a blue shirt and black pants. The unknown person was seen on the home security video system. The golf cart garage door was open, but there was no golf cart or other vehicles on the property. The owner was not at home at the time of the incident. Security contacted the owner and advised him of their findings. He thanked Security for their assistance and wanted no further actions taken. Security did check the area and did not see anyone fitting the description, and no other reports were received.

Criminal Trespass

On June 25 at approximately 4 p.m., Landings Security received a call about a person who had entered a resident’s home the night before (June 24) at approximately 7:40 p.m. The resident was in the kitchen fixing a meal when she heard the doorbell ring and the dog started barking. She was not expecting anyone, so she peeked around the corner and saw a woman standing at the door who she did not recognize and did not answer the door. After the unknown woman rang the doorbell a second time, the resident heard the front door open, and someone yelled “Hello” a couple of times. When the unknown woman was confronted by the resident, she claimed to be looking for someone else with the neighbor’s address. The unknown woman quickly exited the home, got into a vehicle, and departed. A suspect has been identified by the resident based on photographs shared on social media. The residents contacted CCPD, and TLA Security is working with CCPD and the resident to pursue possible criminal trespassing charges.
