Civil Dispute 

On July 14, Landings Security responded to a report of a dispute between a resident and vendor. The vendor knocked on the resident’s door soliciting business to lay pine straw for $4 a bale. The resident agreed, and when the work was completed, the vendor claimed to have laid 400 bales and gave the resident a bill for $1,600. No company information was provided to the resident and the solicitors left The Landings via the Oakridge Access Control Facility (gate). Video footage was reviewed, and it appears the vehicle in question tailgated into the community. Solicitation is prohibited in The Landings. If a resident ever is approached by a vendor soliciting business, they should immediately notify Landings Security (912-598-1982, option 3).

Swimming/Wading in Lagoons

On July 16, Landings Security responded to two separate incidents involving juveniles swimming and wading in lagoons. One was at the lagoon by Palmetto 14 and the other was behind Riding Lane. Security spoke with the juveniles and parents regarding the incident on Riding Lane but were unable to locate the juveniles at Palmetto 14.

Entering Automobile/Theft

On July 17, Landings Security responded to a theft from a motor vehicle on Franklin Wood Lane. The vehicle was parked in the driveway of the residence and the owner does not recall whether or not the vehicle was left unlocked. The owner’s wallet, which was taken, contained debit cards, credit cards, cash, and identification. Chatham County Police Department (CCPD) was contacted, and a report filed. Currently, there are no suspects in this case, and no signs of forced entry were observed.
