There were reports of breaking and entering and larceny made to the UNCP Department of Police and Public Safety, and they are working to solve the cases.
The suspect entered by climbing the basketball court fence, according to Detective Ed Locklear of the Department of Police and Public Safety.
According to the foreman, Jessie Fisher, a grinder that was left out by the crew was used to saw off the lock to a toolbox on the site. The suspect took several hand tools.
The theft was discovered on March 12, and Campus Police believe that it occurred on March 11, according to Locklear.
A suspect entered a professor’s office through an unlocked window and stole his personal laptop computer and one that belonged to the UNCP Education Department. Both of the computers were black and gray Compaq NX5000’s, according to Locklear.
No suspects have been identified, nor have any arrests been made.
Sgt. Steve Collins discovered that the suspects were not UNCP students. The suspects were forced to return the speakers and were placed under arrest.
