• Trespass/Stolen Property Recovery (Tides Drive)

A construction crew doing work on Tides Dr had been staying there for the past 30 days without the homeowner’s permission. The situation was discovered during a larceny investigation stemming from a B&E that occurred in Southern Shores. The homeowner was contacted by Duck officers and the owner advised they were at the house to do a job but had not been given permission to stay at the house. All crew members packed their belongings without incident. During the eviction MPO Garrett observed stolen property in a bedroom, which included the license plate reported stolen from E Bias Lane last week. Charges were taken out by both DPD and SSPD and the suspect was arrested the following day in Currituck.

• Dispute (Jay Crest Road)

Officers responded to a dispute in progress where both parties were involved in a physical altercation prior to the officer’s arrival. The parties were separated with one leaving the residence to avoid further conflict. Neither party wished to pursue charges.

• Dispute (East Seahawk Drive)

A dispute occurred between a construction crew and tenant after the female tenant believed she saw one of the construction workers enter the back of her vehicle when it was parked in the driveway. The crew worker stated that she was at least a ¼ mile away walking back to the house as he was getting something from his work vehicle, which was parked in front of her vehicle. Words were exchanged between parties but there was no evidence to support the complaint. The call was placed by the construction crew foreman when the female became irate.

• Rear End Collision (Duck Road)

Rear end collision occurred in the area of 1100 Duck Road when the driver of the striking vehicle looked down for a moment and looked up too late to see the vehicle in front almost stopped. No injuries, property damage only.
