Residents returned home Sunday to find their Venado Drive home had been burglarized and numerous items of value were missing. The missing items included cash, jewelry, electronics, a laptop and more, according to Security. Security Chief Greg Remson said there were no signs of forced entry and "the house wasn't ransacked at all, which is a little bit odd."
The Sheriff's Department was contacted, and sheriff's crime scene investigators came to the scene, according to the security logs. Remson recommended residents make sure their doors are locked and, if there's an alarm system, to use it.
The day after the burglary on the North, about $1,200 worth of alcohol was reported stolen from a backyard on Reynosa Drive on the South. "They were preparing to have a party and they had it stored ... at (an outdoor) kitchen bar. Somebody got wind of it," Remson said.
Two golf carts were stolen from driveways in separate incidents on the North in recent weeks. Keys and golf clubs were left in one of the carts, but they weren't there when the cart was recovered in the lot of the Country Store May 10. The golf clubs were found in the common area two days later and returned to their owner.
Alert neighbors notified Security after seeing a cart abandoned in front of a vacant house off Puerto Drive May 5.
