Police charge Durham man with breaking into Catawba College building
SALISBURY — Police charged a now former Catawba College student with breaking into the administration building after finding a set of keys on the campus. The man faces felony offenses and is expected in court for a first appearance Friday.
Police charged Lucas Daniel Collie, 20, of the 3800 block of Regent Road, Durham, with felony breaking and entering and felony larceny. He was issued a $1,000 secured bond and has since been released from the Rowan County Detention Center.
The incident occurred May 11 at the campus, 2300 W. Innes St., when he picked up some keys in a parking lot that he used to gain access into the administrative building. Once inside the building, the man went into the student affairs office and took $270 from a drawer. The money was for a fundraiser, said Police Capt. Shelia Lingle.
The college had surveillance video that captured the break-in and campus police were able to identify the man as Lucas Collie. Police said Collie returned all of the money.
Catawba College officials confirmed Collie was enrolled as a student at the beginning of the spring semester, but is not now a student.
