On the Security Scene
On Tuesday, May 28, Security received a call from a resident on Franklin Creek Road South regarding a suspicious incident which occurred at his home. The caller stated he was at his home around 11 a.m. when an unknown man rang his doorbell. When the resident did not answer the door, the man walked to the rear of the home and entered the residence through the back door. The resident confronted the individual who stated that he was there to perform a home inspection because his home was for sale. The homeowner informed Security that his daughter is his realtor, and she had not set up a home inspection. The resident described that individual as a white male, approximately 30-to-40 years old, with brown hair and a mustache. He was driving a newer model black Dodge Ram without company logos. Unfortunately, the resident was unable to provide a license plate number. The homeowner did not want Security or CCPD to respond; however, Security patrols responded to the area but did not see a person or vehicle matching the descriptions provided. Security placed a notice to look out for the individual and vehicle. Extra patrols will be performed, and officers will continue looking for the individual.
Security responded to a residence on Landings Way South on Saturday, May 25, for a report of theft. The homeowner stated that four of her five potted plants were taken from her yard sometime between 11 p.m. Friday evening and 6 a.m. Saturday morning. The estimated value of the potted plants is approximately $100. The resident did not wish to contact CCPD. Extra patrols will be performed.
Security and CCPD responded to a domestic disturbance on Benedictine Retreat on Sunday, May 26. One person was transported to the hospital for injuries. One person was arrested.
Request for Assistance
On Sunday, May 26 at approximately 1:36 a.m., Security responded to a request for assistance at Landings Harbor Marina. A Marinas member returned to the Harbor to find his “wet” boat slip occupied by another boat. Staff were able to identify the trespassing boat owner as a Marinas member that has access to the “dry” boat storage. The trespassing boat owner responded upon our request and removed the boat from the slip. Although CCPD Officers were on scene, the two parties became verbally argumentative, but no arrests were made, and the “wet” slip owner eventually
was able to dock his boat. The Marinas Director is developing a proposed addendum to Marina Members contracts stating such similar incidents will incur a fee for unauthorized use of a boat slip. The proposal will be discussed at the next Marinas Committee meeting.
