— Campus police said Thursday that they are investigating two burglaries in the Ehringhaus Residence Hall at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Residents on different floors of the dormitory reported that someone entered their rooms early Wednesday while they slept and took cash from their wallets, police said.

Police issued a campus security alert Thursday.

North Carolina State University police issued a similar alert last weekend when students reported wallets stolen from dorm rooms on the Raleigh campus.

Anyone with information about the UNC-Chapel Hill break-ins is asked to call 911 or Crime Stoppers at 919-942-7515.
