More Rolesville News – April 2015

Important Message from the Rolesville Police Department – April 16, 2015

On April 15, 2015, the Town of Rolesville Police Department received two separate complaints that we wanted to notify the public about.  Both complaints stated that that two or three suspicious individuals came to their residence claiming to be either City of Raleigh or Power Line employees.  These suspicious visitors wanted to check things out in the Rolesville resident’s house and/or yard.  Both complaints reported the same description of the suspicious individuals.  Please see the description below:

Town of Rolesville*White male, 30-40 years old, black hair and goatee, 5’9” tall, 160 pounds, beige windbreaker, plaid shirt and navy slacks.
*White female, about 35 years old, sandy blonde hair, 5”4” tall, stocky, grey windbreaker, jeans, orange tennis shoes.
*Charcoal gray passenger vehicle.

Because of that, we thought it best to provide some safety tips.  If someone were to approach your home that you do not recognize, please proceed with caution.  Do not hesitate to ask for identification and make notes of appearances and vehicular descriptions including license plate numbers.  Do not allow anyone inside your residence that you do not know.  If you were to see anything suspicious, do not hesitate to contact 911. The Rolesville Police are here to assist in any and every way. The safety of our community is a top priority.

We also want to remind everyone to keep your vehicles locked at all times and your valuables out of sight or secured within your residence.  Remember that we continue to educate everyone about Operation: Porch Light.  Criminals do not like to have the lights shining on them.  You can find more information about Operation: Porch Light on the Town’s website at RolesvilleNC.gov

The Town of Rolesville Police Department wanted to make sure everyone knew about several items and programs:

Operation: Porch Light

Several years ago, the Town instituted Operation: Porch Light.  This program, offered by the Rolesville Police Department, strives to help our community be more pro-active and prevent crime before it happens.  To do this successfully, your help is needed.  The Town is asking EVERYONE to turn on their front porch lights, driveway lights, backdoor lights, etc. EVERY night.  Make it a routine thing.  Be sure to lock your vehicles, doors, and windows at all times and don’t give criminals ANY opportunity in our/your community.  The more well-lit our community is, the less darkened areas exist for criminals to hide.

 Cut-Through Traffic at CVS at Rogers Road and Main Street

The Town of Rolesville adopted a new ordinance last month making it illegal to cut through the CVS parking lot to avoid the traffic lights at the intersection of Rogers Rd and South Main St.  The logic for this new law came out of concern of safety.  We had received many phone calls about close calls.  The Rolesville Police Department is enforcing the new ordinance and we ask all drivers to use the traffic signals at the intersection.  If caught violating the local Town Ordinance, drivers can face penalties, court cost and time away from their job.  The Rolesville Police Department wants to be proactive and educate the public so that everyone is well informed.  If you would like any further information about the new ordinance, please contact the Rolesville Police Department at 919.556.7226

Three-Way Stop on Virginia Water Drive at Trillick Court

At the request of area residents, the Town of Rolesville has erected a three way stop on Virginia Water Drive and Trillick Court in the Village of Rolesville Subdivision.  Again, the Rolesville Police Department wants to be proactive in educating the public for the safety of all.  Please contact the Rolesville Police Department at 919.556.7226 if you have any questions or concerns.
