UNC Students Charged in $32K Drug Raid

"It doesn't affect my sense of personal safety," UNC junior Vanessa Matos said. "I've been here three years and haven't heard anything like this before. It's not something that concerns me because I'm not involved in stuff like that."

Assistant Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Winston Crisp said the university will determine how to discipline the students involved.

"The university always looks at felony charges to determine whether or not conditions are presented that would make it dangerous or disruptive for students to be on campus," he said.

When evaluating drug-related issues concerning students, Crisp said the university refers to the Emergency Evaluation and Safety policy. According to this policy, the university will "summarily suspend the student from the University or take other appropriate action" if they are deemed to be a threat to the campus community.

Crisp said this review process will take place after the police investigation.

The court date is set for Oct. 23. At the time of this publication, Vaughan's lawyer could not be reached for comment. The others involved in this case were also unavailable.
