RALEIGH, N.C. — North Carolina State football players Marcus Hudson and Corrie Dawson spent Thursday afternoon at the Wake County Magistrate's Office, facing two charges for using another student's all-campus card
Hudson and Dawson each has been charged with one count of felonious transaction card theft and one count of misdemeanor financial transaction card fraud after an incident on campus early Tuesday morning.
They have been suspended from the football team.
According to a report, NCSU police responded to a call of suspicious activity at the Sullivan Residence Hall vending machines around 12:04 a.m. Tuesday. The caller told police there were people using an all-campus card multiple times and filling a box with snacks and a bag with drinks.
Officers responded and identified the subjects as Hudson and Dawson. The two men presented valid all-campus cards and said they were stocking up on snacks.
During a follow-up investigation, police discovered that a card Hudson and Dawson used at a vending machine belonged to another student. That student had reported that $344 were illegally charged to his account before realizing the card was missing.
On Thursday, warrants were issued for Hudson and Dawson.
