UNC Police are investigating a breaking-and-entering that occurred early Saturday morning at Jackson Hall, which houses the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, just hours before the highly anticipated UNC-Duke basketball game.
According to a UNC Police report, the suspect stole $175 worth of property from the office, including a UNC garden gnome, a Roy Williams bobblehead and a framed photo.
Kendall Walker, a member of the wardrobe crew for the production of PlayMakers Repertory Company's "Everybody," said the suspect was allegedly seen in the building on surveillance footage wearing a skeleton costume, one of three of the costumes stolen from "Everybody."
Walker, a senior dramatic art and communications double major, worked on the production as a part of a class required for the dramatic art majors.
“Friday night, all six of the skeleton costumes were checked in by another crew member,” Walker said. “It was his job every night to make sure they all got back. When we came back on Saturday, we noticed that three of them were missing. We couldn’t find them, so they had to have been either moved or taken.”
