FIRST ON 3: Christmas break-ins target UNCW financial aid, athletic ticket offices

Tuesday, December 27th, 2011

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Stealing a page from Dr. Seuss, it looks a like a Grinch targeted UNC Wilmington Christmas day.

UNCW Police say someone broke into Trask Coliseum and the Warwick Center over the weekend. Investigators believe it happened Sunday during the day. An officer making routine rounds discovered the crimes Christmas night.

Police say they do not believe anything was physically stolen from the Warwick Center, but they say the burglar or burglars broke into the Financial Aid and Student Accounts offices. Police say the crook rummaged through information in the Financial Aid office.

At Trask, police say the thief got into the ticket office and stole $900 in cash.

No word on if any financial or personal records may have been compromised.

Severe weather threat continues this afternoon

Tuesday, December 27th, 2011

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Damaging winds and even an isolated tornado are threats we’re monitoring in the StormTrack 3 Weather Center as a powerful cold front moves across the Carolinas today. 

Some storms will be able to produce high winds over 50 mph at times. This threat for damaging winds continues until approximately 5pm. 

A secondary threat that we are watching is the possibility for a few storms to rotate, and produce a brief tornado. This is not a high risk, but a possibility nonetheless. If any tornadoes form, we’ll have all the latest warnings for you on-air, online, on Facebook, and on Twitter

Earlier in the day a tornado warning was issued for a possible waterspout that was close to coming ashore in Oak Island and Caswell Beach. There has not been any confirmation of a tornado touchdown at this time. 

This system is a fast mover, and all of the rain will be ending around 5pm this evening with skies rapidly clearing as we head into the overnight hours. 

Remember, you can track the storms at home with our new Interactive Radar.

Keep it here with WWAY for all the latest on the weather.

Meteorologist Tim Buckley
