Kluge, according to the deputy, said Ciccarelli had used tools to try to break into a storage unit at NCCC. One such tool was observed on the dashboard of the vehicle by the deputy, which gave the deputies reason to believe they could search the vehicle. They said they located a set of snips.

At the storage unit on NCCC property, NCSO deputy also reported a broken lock and damage but nothing taken from the unit.

Kluge was charged with trespassing. Ciccarelli was charged with trespassing, and a felony charge of third-degree burglary, second-degree criminal mischief and aggravated unlicensed operation, according to the report.
