Second ECU Student Charged With Sorority Break-Ins

Another ECU student has been arrested for a series of sorority house break-ins. This as another student charged in connection with one of the cases is now out of jail.

Greenville police have charged Anthony Bertaux with four counts of first degree burglary. Warrants say between 8:00 p.m. on January 10th and 4:00 a.m. on the 11th the Apex man broke into Delta Zeta, Sigma Sigma Sigma, Alpha Delta Pi and the Chi Omega sorority homes, all on West 5th Street.

Bertaux was released on a $25,000 bond. He was arrested Saturday and had his first court appearance today.

Michael Ferguson was arrested last Wednesday for trying to break into the Delta Zeta house and for consuming alcohol by a 19 or 20 year old. He was released from jail Friday after his bond was changed from secured to unsecured.

    Folks are just way too uptight! Maybe it's all the other crime going on that people can't discriminate between a college prank (hey, this is a college town) & real crime. If you understand college life & the frat experience, foolishness goes on. I admire the young men serving our country but hopefully these guys will earn a degree & serve our country in the workforce. It's the choice they made vs. the military. Hope these charges are dropped.

    cant wait until one of the sorority girls tries to break into a frat house to steal composites. (which they do all the time). someone should call the cops on them too.

      So you say the other guy was breaking and entering and stealing, but your kid was just pulling a prank. Okay.

      Your looking for sympathetic ear from the wrong crowd, you should have taught him some manners and common sense.

      Your boy is a 19 year old man. The justice system will process this and your son's side of the story will be heard. Your post just illustrates the disparity in our society that is apparent every time I turn on the news. I have a 19 year old son that is in Afghanistan, and I know several other parents that do so too. They are risking their lives, as adults, for this nation. In the meantime, we have you on this site representing your son who is an adult and no longer a child. Let him grow up and stop acting as if you are a "mommy" to a 5 yeard old. This just reads pathetic, especially in light of what other young adults are facing on a daily basis. Time for a reality check, "Mom".
