Area Crack Bust
Yields 2 Arrests
Carrboro police Capt. Joel
Booker says increased crack
cocaine busts are a sign of
the drug's growing demand.
By Kathleen Wirth
Assistant City Editor
After an intense undercover investi
gation, Carrboro police shut down one
man’s drug operation late Wednesday,
confiscating $4,800 in cash and checks
along with 14.6 grams of crack cocaine.
And it’s not over yet - police still
plan to make more arrests.
Police charged Carlton Eric Foust,
42, of 501 N.C. 54 Bypass, Apt. G-6, in
Carrboro with felony possession of
crack cocaine, misdemeanor possession
of drug paraphernalia and felony main
taining a dwelling for the purpose of
selling a controlled substance. His sister,
Janet Marie Foust, 36, of the same
address was charged with misdemeanor
possession of drug paraphernalia,
During the raid, police also seized a
Remington Model 870 pump shotgun, a
.25 caliber pistol and various drug para
phernalia, reports state.
Carrboro police Capt. Joel Booker
said police used undercover surveil
lance, and several officers executed con
trolled buys during the investigation.

Apartment Fire Kills
N.C. State Student
By Worth Civils
An early Thursday morning fire from
an unattended stove killed one N.C.
State University student and injured
Ken Stuart Carroll, 22, a senior bio
logical engineering major from Godwin,
was pronounced dead at Wake Medical
Center in Raleigh on Thursday morn
ing. Carroll was the last person fire
fighters pulled from the apartment,
located at 45417-C Dana Drive in Sumter
Square Apartments in Raleigh.
He was not breathing and had no
heartbeat at the scene.
Blake Alex Bullard, 22, a senior food
science major from Autry ville, was treat
ed for smoke inhalation at the UNC
“He’s doing real good and may be
able to go home today,’’ Sylvia Bullard,
the victim’s mother, said Thursday.
Bullard and Carroll lived with a third
student, Gary Bradley Jackson, 21, a
with an address and a description,” he
said. “We then used mosdy surveillance
and controlled buys to get the probable
cause for a search warrant.”
Booker said the raid was not con
nected to earlier drug arrests, but it was
indicative of the increased local demand
for crack cocaine. “I don’t know that
there’s any connection in terms of dis
tribution and dealers,” he said. “But I
think it indicates there’s a large demand
for crack cocaine in our community.
“This was a pretty big bust for us.”
Booker said he was expecting more
arrests in connection with the raid.
“We’ve been in contact with other
local agencies out of our jurisdiction,”
he said. “Other investigations are under
way, and more charges are pending.”
The bust comes on the heels of a
report that showed Chapel Hill police
are making more arrests for drug-relat
ed offenses. This is the second bust by
Carrboro police within the last month.
Carlton Foust was transported
Wednesday to the Orange County Jail
where he was held in lieu of a SIO,OOO
secured bond until late Thursday after
noon, police said. Janet Foust was released
Wednesday on a S2OO unsecured bond.
Carlton Foust made his first appear
ance in Orange County District Court in
Hillsborough on Thursday, whilejanet
Foust is scheduled to appear March 20.

senior accounting major also from
Autryville, who was not injured.
Officials said that Carroll often came
home late and cooked, but that it was
unclear why he had left the stove.
Firefighters found him in the bathroom.
Sylvia Bullard said her son and
Carroll were friends for a long time.
“They’ve grown up together,” she said.
“They went to the same church and
have gone to school with each other
Jackson was also a close friend of
Carroll and Bullard’s.
Raleigh Fire Marshal Larry Stanford
said Jackson woke up about 3:30 a.m.
when the smoke detector sounded.
Stanford said Jackson escaped
through the window and tried to wake
his roommates by beating on their win
After not getting a response, Jackson
went to a neighboring apartment and
called the Raleigh Fire Department.

Apology to Settle Kraft Protest Case
UNC junior Chiara D'Amore
made an agreement with
UNC officials to avoid
facing Honor Court charges.
By Mark Thomas
A UNC junior took the first step in
avoiding prosecution on three separate
Honor Court charges Thursday by issu
ing a public apology for her involve
ment in an Oct. 28 protest against Kraft
Inc., a subsidiary of Philip Morris.
Chiara D’Amore faced charges of
willfully furnishing University officials
with false information, misuse of
University property and the obstruction
of University operations as a result of an
impromptu October protest of campus
recruiting by Kraft.
D’Amore’s apology comes after she
reached a compromise this week with
Marcia Harris, director of University
The agreement stipulates that
D’Amore must also issue letters of apol
ogy to Kraft and UCS officials. She must
also perform five hours of community

With the symptoms of March

In their minds, the Duke-North
Carolina men’s basketball game epito
mizes college hoops rivalry.
The well-worn battle road is a nine
mile stretch from Chapel Hill to
Durham, leading up to the Blue Devils’
den, locally known as Krzyzewskiville.
This makeshift campground juxta
poses the towering Gothic spires of the
Duke campus with the dwarfed nylon
tents of K-ville.
Students with an affinity for Blue
Devils basketball or a hatred for any
thing Carolina blue opt to pack
belongings for a three-week hiatus.
For Duke students, this home-away
from-home is located on the grassy
service on behalf of UCS.
The charges stem from allegations
that D’Amore lied about being regis
tered with UCS in order to obtain an
interview with campus recruiters from
Kraft. She supposedly arrived at the
interview with other students who pro
ceeded to protest against Kraft’s associ
ation with Philip Morris.
D’Amore’s apology states that she

the activity of the protesters limited to
outdoor campus areas such as the Pit
instead of focusing the protest on the
two Kraft recruiters.
D’Amore’s apology also stated that
she did not see the Honor Court as the
best means to resolving her situation.
“I felt very uncomfortable with the
adversarial nature of the student Honor
Court process,” the apology stated.

A UNC law student making fast
bucks buying and selling Internet
domain addresses is finding that profit
might come with a cost.
That cost could come from the
University’s investigation for trademark
violations into the Web site “UNC
Girls,” located at the domain name unc
girls.com. The site features amateurish
snapshots of the Pit and Franklin Street
and various professional shots of
women in sexually explicit positions.
The domain name is registered to
Theodore Maloney, a third-year law stu
dent who says he sold the rights to the
site. No record exists of the sale, which
he said was in cash without a receipt.
He refuses to reveal who bought it,
but said he sold it to a friend in Chapel
Hill who is not a UNC student. This
man, Maloney said, is the one responsi
ble for the site’s content.
Maloney objected to a story in the Feb.
25 edition of The Daily Tar Heel that
characterized him as the site’s Webmaster.
He maintains that he has no role in the
site’s content development and thus can
not be considered the Webmaster. But
legal experts said the responsibilities of a
domain owner are undefined, and
whether that person is a Webmaster
hinges on the extent of his or her involve
ment in developing content for the site.

said the responsibility of a registered
domain name owner was unclear, but
that if an individual made editorial deci
sions regarding the content of the site,
he could be considered liable.
“(Responsibility) can come if someone
owns, registers and makes the decisions
about what goes up on a site, if they are
making choices about content versus just
providing a technical hookup,” she said.

that Maloney’s involvement sparked a
content change on the site.
