News Alert: Seahawk Statue Back in Nest
AUGUST 27, 2014:
Dear Campus Community:
We are pleased to announce that the Seahawk statue that was stolen from in front of Warwick Center on July 5 has been located and returned to campus! An anonymous tip was received by Crime Stoppers of Cape Fear on Thursday, August 21 (one day after the UNCW Police Department released footage of the theft). As this remains an open investigation, UNCWPD will release further details when appropriate. For now we just wanted to share the good news, given the attention this theft received both on- and off- campus.
Thank you for your interest in Sammy's safe return!
