— Three men were charged Sunday with stealing an emergency phone on the North Carolina State University campus, according to police records.

Sean Vandergrift, Brian Joseph Cunningham, and Matthew R. Cunningham, all 18, all of Marlton, N.J., were charged with felony larceny. They were each released on $5,000 bonds.

Arrest warrants state that the three stole an emergency blue light phone pole, valued at $2,500, from the campus on Saturday.

Charges against Vandergrift were dismissed after he completed 24 hours of community service.

    Sounds like a stoopid prank. What the heck are you gonna do with a stolen emergency phone? It ain't like you can plug it in at home (unless you want it to be traced to you).

    Wonder if these yahoos are students or just visiting.

    If they have a clean record, they'll might be eligible for the NC's felony aversion program.
