By Stephen Knglish
Some guys would do anything to
get into a fraternity.
I on Worth police arrested a 17
year old male lor bryaking into the
Sigma Phi Fpsilon fraternity house at
3300 Avenue (' on Jan. 26 at approxi-
mately 3:1 5 a.m., according to Charles
McCorkle, director ol the Department
ol Security and Safety ai Wcsleyan.
Sigma I'lu Hpsilon president Scott
'Able anil Chris Masingill, vi'ce presi-
dent of the Student Government and a
Sigma Phi Fpsilon member, said they
suspected someone had been break-
ing into the house for about a month
prior to the youth's arrest.
"Windows were tampered with,
and we found cigarette butts that
shouldn't have been there," said Able,
a junior. "Only two people have keys
to the house."
Nothing was stolen and there was
no \ andahsm, according to McCorkle.
"He was basically looking for a
warm place to sleep," he said.
"They (security) put
themselves on the line
and should be recog-
nized for that."
McCorkle said it, appeared that the
youth had been kicked out of his home.
The night of the arrest. Able and
Masingill said they had decided to
stake out the fraternity house in a
parked car. Eventually they saw the
youth enter the house through a win-
dow on the southeast corner, they said.
According to Masingill, they
waited a few seconds before phoning,
campus security and then 91 1. Al-
though the fraternity house is privately
owned and technically not part of the
Wesleyan campus, security arrived to
secure the house in about 10 minutes,
"They (security) put themselves,
on the line, and should be recognized
for that," Able said.
Masingill said lie teels that cam-
pus security should be better equipped
to handle such situations.
Able said that police arrived about
15 minutes after campus security. As
a police helicopter flashed a spotlight
on the house, police searched the
house with Able and Masingill for the
intruder, according to Masingill.
"We found him in a stored mat-
tress, folded in there like a sandwich."
"The police were very good and
very prompt," Masingill said.
Able said the fraternity does not
plan to file charges.
