A man was arrested Monday by Appalachian State University police for March 2 breaking/entering and larceny on the campus.

University police arrested Alec Christopher Schemmel, 20, a freshman from Mecklenburg County on the felony charge of breaking/entering and the misdemeanor charge of larceny for an incident at about 4 a.m. at a residence hall room in Appalachian Panhellenic Hall on Blowing Rock Road, Boone.
