Security and Chatham County Police Department (CCPD) responded to a residence on Salt Wind Circle for a burglary on Wednesday, January 31. The resident stated that she heard someone rustling around in the bedroom when she arrived home. She called out to see who was there and witnessed a man run out of her home.

Security and CCPD responded to the intersection of Diamond Causeway and Lake Street on Thursday, February 1, for a report of a two-vehicle accident without injuries between a resident and a vendor. The resident advised she was leaving the island when the vendor made a left hand turn towards Lake Street causing her to strike the passenger side of the vehicle near the rear tire. The vendor stated that he believed he was able to turn due to having a green light; however, a witness stated that the resident had the green light. The Avigilon camera video was reviewed and confirmed that the resident had the green light. The vendor was found at fault for the accident. Both vehicles had to be towed from the scene.
