Three Arrested For Stealing From ECU Employees

If you think your office is a safe place to leave your valuables - you might want to think again after East Carolina University police arrested three people for breaking into offices on campus.

ECU police say it happened in the old cafeteria complex last Thursday.

Officers say Quamane McNair and two juveniles broke into several offices in the building and stole things like purses, wallets and cell phones.

Staff members say they noticed McNair and the others acting suspicious, and tipped off campus police. All three are charged with felony breaking and entering, and larceny after breaking and entering.

ECU police say academic buildings are unlocked during the day, meaning people can come and go. They say it's best to keep your valuables locked up or with you at all times - something staff members in the building say they plan to do.

    Wonder if these same individuals are also responsible for the HigherOne account theft at UBE?

    We should dump more $ into entitlement programs so these poor helpless folks won't have to steal. We should just pay for their housing and food and electric bills and then give them a $300 montly allowance so they can purchase those fance Air Jordans and that bling bling. LOL

    Only comment-why is 90% of the crime faces I see on the news or in the paper black?? You should read Walter Williams column ( he is black) in todays paper N&O on the sorry state of the black family and its impact on their education.

    It's time for you to stop blaming whitey. It's getting rather old. Black men have done great things in this country with the help of other races (including whites) such as getting elected president. White folks aren't quick to judge, but they are tired of the race card constantly being played.

    To Data Man-These people have alredy had their day in court and have done/doing their time. Justice has been served. They also were able to pay for their own attorny, can these gentlemen? What I feel pains most Americans is that if you look at the majority of immigrants that have come to this country, they have found a way to assimilate into the American culture and be successfull in pursuing the American Dream. Some of us trulyy get tired of the race card always being played, how hard life is for my people, the discrimination that we still face, that slavery still keeps the black man down, our children don't do good in school becasue teachers can't tech, the government owes me reparations from 1865, I want mine. It needs to end. Hold people accountable for their actions/lives and quit pssing out the freebies through social entitlements.

    NAACP will not come to a poor low-class black man's rescue if he dont have a truck load of money well i guess they will probably be out of business soon because that seems to be the majority committing crimes so hey they should use harsher punishment going to prison or jail for 60/90 days that's only encouraging them to committ harsher crimes and gaining knowledge of how to committ them so its America's faught with this unpeckable crime levels

    I think you need to look that one up Data Man. Words are fun and I like reading most of the well thought out posts on here, but it's nearly as much fun to see someone use a word incorrectly or with a mistaken implication. I suggest you also look up the expression "For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge". Knowledge is power! lol

    To Data Man: I'm a white woman but I would think anyone being compared to Martha Stewart or Palin would be offended and I dont appreciate it thanks.

    To bruce the shark;It is so amazing to see all the comments about black history month and things of that nature. Yes this guy and the thugs with him should be punished and punished good for the crime that they commited! What you should be concerned about is how whites are stealing and getting rich from america! you people are ready to hang this guy for his crimes. Like I said; this sorry no good thug should be dealt with! But white people are so ready to judge are you are the most carnal minded beings that the Lord has ever made! Why dont you call names like Maddoff, Markoff, Martha Stewart, Bush and palin! This are people that you people should be concerned about! Just a sorry bunch of nothings!
