Campus Crime ReportBy Amanda Hickey

A fight that occurred a few weeks ago, spilled onto the University campus March 24.
The victim was assaulted and had to be taken to the Emergency Room later that day, according to Detective Ed Locklear of Campus Police. Three students from the Laurinburg Institute were charged with assault on the campus level and banned from campus.
Locklear then assisted the victim in charging the trio with assault inflicting serious injury. The three were placed in Scotland County jail under a $300 secured bond on the same day.
“The professor came in and his whole system was gone,” said Locklear. “They took everything but the printer.”
Locklear is hoping that the system is somewhere on campus, and someone will log in. “The computer center is going to run the IP address and see if it appears on campus,” Locklear said.
Five charged with affray
Three students and two non-students were charged with simple affray after an incident in West Hall.
A student confronted his sister’s ex-boyfriend in West Hall about their break up. “He went back and got his buddies and basically tried to throw him over the balcony,” said Detective Ed Locklear of Campus Police.
Three students and two non-students were charged with simple affray.
A basketball jersey was stolen from the Jones P.E. Building. The jersey was reported missing on March 28 when Tony Chavis noticed that it was missing. The lock had been removed and was off of the showcase, according to Detective Ed Locklear. “If anyone sees an old black and gold jersey, number 24, we’re looking for it,” he said.
Former UNCP employee resists arrest
A former campus employee arrived on campus March 31 demanding to see the provost. When she was unable to see him, she went to another building and became irate, according to Locklear.
“When officers tried to calm her down, she struck one of the officers,”he said. The woman was banned from campus.
The woman recieved multiple charges. She was charged with disorderly conduct, harassing and threatening another, obstruct and delay and assault on a government official on the campus level.
She was also charged with assault on a government official and resisting arrest on the state level.
No operator’s license
A non-student was charged for driving without an operator’s license. The driver came through a check point on March 29, and when the officer asked for identification, he produced an out of state identification without a birthday on it, according to Locklear.
When the officer asked what his birthday was, the driver in question began joking and avoiding the question. The driver received a state charge, campus charge and was banned from campus for one year.
“If he cooperated, he would have just received a citation,” said Locklear.
Female approached by subject at track
A female reported that she felt threatened when approached by a male subject at the track over the weekend, said Locklear. The subject walks during the evenings during the week and in the mornings on weekends.
The subject is a black male, mid-40s, medium build, bald and walks with a limp, according to Locklear. The subject is normally seen driving a burgundy minivan, but last weekend he was driving a late model burgundy car.
