Security responded to a residence regarding a dog attack on Sunday, February 21. The resident advised that he was taking his dog for a bike ride in the Becks Retreat area when he noticed a man with a dog not on a leash. As he rode past, the dog began to run behind the bicycle and started biting at his dog. There were no noticeable injuries on his dog. Security attempted to make contact with the possible owner of the unknown dog, but the attempts were unsuccessful. The report was provided to Chatham Animal Control.
Reckless Driving Incident
On Wednesday, February 17, a resident contacted Security to report a reckless driving incident. The resident advised that they had been passed on Landings Way South by another vehicle at a high rate of speed in a no passing area. Security was able to identify the vehicle’s owner with information provided by the complainant. The vehicle’s owner informed the officer that his teenager was operating the vehicle at the time of the incident. After thanking the officer for the information, he stated that the issue would be addressed and offered an apology to the complainant.
Security responded to Deer Run for a report of a suspicious vehicle on Tuesday, February 23. Upon arrival, the officer met with an Instacart delivery driver who informed him that the vehicle’s battery died. Attempts to jump the battery had failed so a tow truck was called to retrieve the vehicle. Two cones were placed behind the vehicle until it could be removed. The officer provided the delivery driver a ride to the Main Gate where she was picked up by relatives.
