A recent rash of local pedestrian
robberies has authorities suggesting
ways for students to make themselves
less prone to attack.
Four pedestrians have been robbed
in October, but arrests have been
made in only one case.
Capt. Ralph Pendergraph of the
Chapel Hill Police Department said
there has been an unusually high
number of incidents this month, but
the high crime rate is not entirely
"I hate to sound pessimistic, but
we have been expecting an increase
in street crimes in Chapel Hill,"
Although the police have tried to
prevent it, the increasing presence of
nonresidents in Chapel Hill makes
street crime more likely, he said.
Police have made no connection
between any of the four crimes so far,
B On Oct. 18, Jeffrey Ambrister of
Chapel Hill was robbed of his jacket
and $150 in cash on West Cameron
Avenue. Two people approached
Ambrister from behind and placed a
sharp object at his back, according
to the police report.
B On Oct. 13, Ruth Baldwin, a
UNC School of Public Health stu
dent from Durham, was robbed of
her purse on Vance Street. According
to a police report, a black male jogged
up behind Baldwin, shoved her to the
ground and took her purse.
In connection with the robbery,
Ernest Marvin Josey and Lisa
Rebecca Josey were arrested Oct. 16
and charged with common law
robbery and possession of stolen
Lisa Rebecca Josey was also
charged with two counts of uttering,
which involves tendering a credit card
under false pretenses.

late nights in the library may notice
four students clad in orange vests
The students are part of the newly
organized student patrol that began
operation Thursday, Oct. 8.
The patrollers walk around the
campus from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. each
night, and report illegal activities to
campus police officers.
The students watch parking lots,
bike racks, monument areas such as
the Old Well, the libraries, the
arboretum and campus residence
halls, especially the women's, said
sophomore Kurt Sowers, student
The patrol is sponsored by Student
Government and campus police.
Patrollers are paid $3.50 to $4 an hour
for their work.
"We're looking out for anything
suspicious," he said.
Only four patrollers are working
at this point, according to Officer
Billy Hilliard of University police, but
organizers plan to hire five more
students by the end of October.

Mike Thigpen, another patroller,
said he enjoys the work.
Thigpen, a pre-medical student,

is not in his career plans, he has
always had a strong interest in it. "My

police academy in Macon, Ga., and
my brother is a county deputy. IVe

During their first week on the job,
the patrollers found several vehicles
being broken into, recovered a stolen
bike in the woods, broke up parties
in the baseball stadium and the
arboretum, and caught two people
trying to steal a tennis net from the
courts near Cobb Residence Hall.
"Other than that, things have been
kind of quiet," Thigpen said.
Students proposed forming the
patrol in response to concern about
campus safety, but University police
officers took over organization of the
Student Government allocated
money to buy radios, jackets shirt and
flashlights for the patrol.
Funding for patrollers' salaries will
come from the Department of Uni
versity Housing, University police
and the Traffic and Parking Office.

Carol Geer, Carolina Athletic
Association president, said some
Smith Center donors who were
promised parking spaces on the
courts have not received them. The
Ram's Club saw using the tennis
courts as a possible solution to the
problem, she said.
But students' negative reaction to
the proposal helped convince officials
otherwise, Geer said.
"They realize that those courts are
widely used, and I dont think they
have any desire to take them away,"
student volunteers, who are being
paid to use the drugs so researchers
can monitor the combined effects of
marijuana and alcohol.

drugs at about $100.
