Man jailed in NC State dorm room thefts

Posted December 22, 2010

— A Raleigh man was arrested this week on charges that he broke into eight rooms at Bragaw Residence Hall on the North Carolina State University campus.

Davon Chadewick White, 17, of 552-C E. Jones St., was arrested Monday on breaking and entering charges.

According to search warrants, N.C. State campus police arrested White as he tried to collect stolen property from the dorm.

Police seized several items from White’s home, including a MasterCard, a Macy’s store credit card, a Walmart gift card, a utility bill, a birth certificate and a pawn ticket.

White was in the Wake County jail Wednesday under a $71,000 bond.

    So, is this felon a student at NCSU and a resident of this dorm? If not, why is he on the campus? How is the security. At 17 he needs a really hard lesson here - guess his daddy taught him well! Really, where are his parents in this? At 17 they should know where he is and what he is doing.

    Can somebody go check his place for my son's bike? Seriously...if a kid is riding a bike to class, you're gonna take his transportation? Did it look like a limo? Was there a big "for rent" sign on it? No class! (no pun intended.)

    17? Try 47 years old.

    Son is a Bragaw resident. He said he received NO communications from the school regarding the break ins.

    So glad I lived in Becton and Syme. Living in Bragaw would be like living in Grand Central Station; EVERYBODY goes through there on their way to the dining hall.

    Being in jail for a while will wipe that stupid smirk off his face.

    Why would he steal from poor college kids?
