— North Carolina State University police found and seized 10 iPods in a search of a Bowen Hall dorm room Sunday.

According to the search warrant, Clyde Cox admitted to detectives that his roommate, Max Myrick, would buy the iPods at area Targets, then return the empty boxes for a refund and re-sell the iPods on Craigslist.

Cox told N.C. State police that Myrick filled the empty boxes with pennies and that he sold the like-new iPods on Craiglist for $200.

Durham police informed campus police after Myrick was caught at a Target in Durham trying to return an empty iPod box with a roll of pennies taped inside.

Police also seized eight white bags believed to be iPod headphones and shrink wrap form Myrick's room.

Myrick is out of jail on a $7,000 secured bond.
