January 2, 2013: A New Year at Wellington Ridge!
Unfortunately, Wellington Ridge has experienced several acts of vandalism over the past month, including theft of mailboxes. In addition, toilet paper was strewn in the trees. Toilet papering is considered an act of mischief or vandalism. We'd like your help by asking homeowners to be vigilant and to call the police to report any vandalism. To report an incident to an officer that is not an emergency, contact the Gig Harbor Police Department at (253) 851-2236 and choose option 1 or option 2.

November 21, 2012: Homeowners Word of Advice on Break-ins
"We have lived in Wellington Ridge [address removed] since 1999 and never had an incident. But last night, while at the Peninsula v. Bellevue playoff game, someone broke into our house through a window on the back side. They were very neat and left the screen just below the window; left no dirt or wetness on the carpets; and... oddly did not take anything, as far as we can tell. There are items in the house that would attract the usual small time burglar, and the Sheriff advises burglars aren't likely to take your wide screen TV or Stereo equipment.
I guess we should count ourselves lucky and hope they didn't access bank account information (until Monday, when we will contact the bank).
All residents should be reminded that while our neighborhood looks great, we are not invulnerable to theft and break-ins, and it appears (from the Sheriff's comments) that it is particularly common of late. Especially in back yards that are hidden from view, doorways and windows need to be locked in order to avoid a theft or worse kind of incident.
Heads up to all residents, please!"
