There has been a rash of car break-ins in the Hamlet. Locations along South Country Road, Fireplace Neck and Chapel have been reported. Car windows have been smashed to gain access to items in the cars. Pocketbooks, cell phones and other items have been reported stolen.
Please be alert in your neighborhood and report any suspicious activity. And always lock your car and do not leave valuables in plain sight.
A sailboat docked on the river at Squassux Landing had its 10 hp auxiliary engine stolen between 7/17 and 7/19. While thefts at Squassux are few, they do occur occasionally and serve as a reminder to always secure valuables that are left on your boat and if possible, keep them out of site.
Also, when the guard is not on duty, please lock the gate when entering or exiting Squassux.
Regular Board Meetings are the 2nd Wednesday of each Month at 7:30pm, Post-Morrow Annex, Bay Road
