Two “near misses” have been recently reported to us at the corner of Pheasant Hill and Partridge when drivers have failed to observe the stop sign. There’s likely more. As a reminder, the members voted to keep the stop sign at the intersection in October of 2015 in an effort to increase safety. Please observe all the traffic signs in the neighborhood, stop signs and speed limit signs alike! Nobody wants to wreck their day!
On January 10th, an email was sent to homeowners regarding the burglary of the Court residence, which stated:
This is part of a string of home burglaries that have hit Buffalo Creek, Stoneleigh, and now our neighborhood. There are 3 vehicles that have been linked to these burglaries:
- Gold minivan, paper plates on rear (no front plate), with passenger side damage
- Gold Buick, older model (big) Le Sabre, metal plate but unknown number
- Black or blue Nissan Maxima or Altima, metal plate but unknown number
- 3 black males were observed running from the back of the house and the two vehicles (gold minivan and gold Buick in yesterday’s incident) were driven by black males, for a total of 5 in all.
At the time the investigating officer felt like they had a solid lead on a suspect. To our knowledge, regrettably, no arrests have been made.
Most of these burglaries are during the day when homes are likely vacant. A car parked in the driveway may be a good deterrent.
The Sheriff’s Department asks that non-emergency calls, like the sighting of the vehicles above, be reported to their non-emergency line, 972-204-7001. If you witness suspicious or illegal activity, please dial 9-1-1. (All calls go to the same dispatcher, but they have different handling protocol.)
Over the course of several weeks, homeowners have awoken to the images above, tracks through a portion of 3 different yards. It appears to have been made by a higher profile vehicle with a fairly narrow wheel base and tire tread. Besides the aesthetic aspect of mud tracks through the yards, there is potential for damage to sprinkler heads and other irrigation. It’s vandalism and could lead to unnecessary homeowner repairs. Please be watchful for unfamiliar vehicles and report suspicious vehicles or observed vandalism to the Sheriff’s Department.
