Golf Cart Thefts

On Wednesday, May 29, at approximately 7:40 p.m., a resident contacted Security to report his golf cart had been stolen from the Dog Park. The resident advised he had last seen the cart around 6:55 p.m., when he arrived at the Dog Park. He further stated that the keys were left in the golf cart at the time of the incident. At approximately 8:15 p.m., Chatham County Police Department (CCPD) notified Security that the cart had been found abandoned not far from the Dog Park. Security placed a call to the resident to determine if anything had been stolen from the cart, and the resident stated nothing was missing. It is unknown who took the cart.

While patrolling the Dog Park area on Thursday, May 30, a Security Officer was approached by a resident who reported her golf cart had been stolen. The resident advised the key was tucked away in the cart at the time of the incident. She stated she last saw the cart at approximately 2 p.m., when she arrived at the Dog Park and noticed it was missing at approximately 3:15 p.m. While the Officer was giving the resident a ride back to her residence, they found the cart abandoned on the cart path between Bartram Road and Deer Run. The resident verified nothing was missing from the cart. It is unknown who took the cart.

Staff are working on a communication reminding all residents and guests that taking a golf cart for a joy ride is considered auto theft and can be punishable as such.


On Friday, May 31, a resident contacted Security to report a theft. The resident advised she had left a check for another resident under their doormat while they were away from home. When the intended recipient returned home and attempted to retrieve the check, she discovered it was missing. The intended recipient contacted the resident who immediately placed a stop payment on the check and reported the theft to CCPD. At the time of the report, no attempts had been made to cash the check.


Security responded to a report of vandalism on Sleepy Terrapin Lane on Monday, June 3. A resident advised she noticed something leaking out of her neighbor’s mailbox while walking her dog. She notified her neighbors, and upon further inspection, they found an egg had been thrown into the mailbox. At the time of the incident, there was one piece of mail in the box that was damaged. Residents on Yam Gandy Road and Wiley Bottom Road also reported having eggs thrown into their mailboxes. Extra patrols will be performed.

Suspicious Incident

On Tuesday, June 4, a resident contacted Security to report a suspicious incident. The resident advised that an unknown woman approached her front door and knocked. She then tried to open the door but was unsuccessful due to the door being locked. The woman then proceeded to the right side of the house and attempted to enter through the sunroom door, which also was locked. At that point, the resident’s dogs started barking, and the woman left the area. The resident did not see the woman leave in a vehicle; however, the resident’s daughter stated she noticed a vehicle parked down the road near the tree line. The resident advised that the home was for sale, so it was possible the woman was attempting to enter to look at the property and did not realize anyone lived there. CCPD was not contacted.
