THE EDENWOOD ASSOCIATION FALL MEETING WAS HELD OCT. 29 ,2015 AT 6:30 PM AT THE BROADACRES BAPTIST CHURCH. DINNER BY BESSINGERS WAS @ $8.00
SPECIAL NOTE: AT THE FALL MEETNG THE POLICE OFFICER GAVE A TALK ON SCAMS GOING AROUND THE NEIGHBORHOOD. THE POINT WAS DRIVEN HOME TO ME TODAY OCT. 30, 2015 WHEN A STRANGE BLACK SUV PULLED INTO MY DRIVEWAY WITH THE MOTOR RUNNING. THE DRIVER WAS NOT IN THE VEHICLE SO I WENT OUT TO SEE WHAT WAS GOING ON. BY THE TIME I GOT THERE THE DRIVER, AN AFRO AMERICAN YOUNG MAN, WAS BACK IN THE CAR. HE GOT OUT AND TRIED TO CONVINCE ME THAT HE WAS TAKING A SHORT CUT TO JOSE'S HOUSE–-NO SUCH PERSON LIVES AROUND HERE–THEN HE TRIED TO CONVINCE ME THAT HE WASN’T TRYING TO BREAK INTO MY HOUSE. HE GOT BACK INTO HIS VEHICLE AND LEFT. I IMMEDIATELY CALLED THE POLICE DEPARTMENT AND THEY WERE GOING TO LOOK FOR THE SUV. THE MOTOR WAS RUNNING ROUGH AND THE MUFFLER DID NOT SOUND GOOD. THERE WAS A CHILD IN THE BACK SEAT WHICH I SUPPOSE WAS PART OF THE PLOT.
SO BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR THIS TYPE OF SCAM.
WE HAD A SIMILAR SITUATION ACROSS THE STREET FROM A HOUSE ON THE CORNER OF SHADY AND ROCKY WITH A YOUNG BLACK MAN CUTTING ACROSS THE BACK YARD . HE WAS WATCHED BUT HE HURRIED AWAY WHILE TALKING ON HIS CELL PHONE. THIS WAS ON FRIDAY MORNING ABOUT 10 A.M.
LET'S KEEP OUR EYES OPEN FOR THAT BLACK SUV AND SEE WHAT'S UP WITH THAT. THESE DUDES WERE TRYING TO PICK UP LAWN MOWERS, EQUIPMENT, ETC. FROM AROUND THE HOUSES OUT HERE.

It has been observed that some of the residents of Edenwood are trying to control their squirrel population with BB guns. This could be both dangerous and illegal. One resident reported that she had suffered glass damage because of this. Using a wire trap might be better to catch your squirrels and then release them somewhere else, If you have a severe problem, you might consider calling a pest company to help you get rid of them.
There was a break-in on Northland Dr. in Broad Acres yesterday and another this morning in Concord Park between 7:30 and 11:00 a m. The suspect could be connected to both. The one this morning made entry through a bed room window on the back of the house and jumped a fence, then ran thru Edenwood. The suspect either lives in Edenwood or has connection with an Edenwood resident. Please be ALERT to any suspicious people walking on the street or looking in vehicle windows. If you see anyone please call the Cayce Police Department @ 794-0456.
Please check our Web page on a regular basic and if you see or hear of anything please give me a call.
