North Carolina men arrested in property crime against Clemson U

Many sports fans know that though some superstitions regarding luck for teams may seem a bit silly, they are still sacred to the players, coaches and fans themselves. Some teams have rituals they carry out, special clothing they wear or important artifacts they may touch for luck. When one of these artifacts is damaged, it can cause great upset among thousands of people associated with the team. Currently, Clemson University is facing such turmoil after one of their iconic pieces was allegedly vandalized, and three North Carolina individuals are currently facing the stressful situation of being accused of a property crime.

Howard's Rock -- an encased rock that university players rub before going out onto the field -- was reportedly vandalized in early June after the case was broken into and part of the rock purportedly stolen. An 18-year-old suspect was arrested in June in association with the crime. He was charged with several allegations including malicious injury to personal property and trespassing.

More recently, the accused's father and another teen were also arrested on suspicion of being involved in the incident. The two are currently facing charges of conspiracy and obstruction of justice. There were no details on how authorities came to suspect these two individuals or what the basis is for the allegations against them. They made a court appearance and were released on bond.

A property crime can have very serious consequences if a person is convicted of such allegations. The North Carolina individuals accused in this case should have the ability to present any relevant evidence that could help clear them from the allegations, and they may also request to see evidence the prosecution may have against them. Information on criminal proceedings and laws relating to their situation could be beneficial as their case moves forward. It is important to remember that they are considered innocent until -- and only if -- they are found guilty by the court.
