Campus theft persists

By Carol Franch

Theft continues to lead campus crime at UNCP.            

One student was arrested Oct. 30 for larceny at the bookstore.

One report was filed on Nov. 1 for larceny in Wellons Hall.            

On Nov. 2, two reports were filed for a missing license plate from parking lot 14 and a missing book bag from the library.

Other offenses

Campus police seized toy guns from West Hall on Oct. 23. Toy guns are allowed, but not for use in a threatening manner.

“First instinct when you see a gun tucked on someone’s hip, you think it’s real,” Cummings said.

On Oct. 26, reports were filed for internet harassment in West Hall, damage to property in the Jones Athletic Complex, and a missing child was found in the auxiliary gym.            

On Nov. 1, reports were filed for an accident in parking lot 14 and suspicious activity in the library.

Two arrests were made on Nov. 2 and 4 for possession of a controlled substance in Pine Hall.            

Other police incidents that day included activation of the sprinkler system in Locklear Hall, and an injured student in the auxiliary gym.

Two reports were filed for damage to personal property on Nov. 3 and 6.            

Campus Police were also sent to assist the Pembroke Police Department with a fight at the Huddle House restaurant on Nov. 5.
