Law Student Charged in Registrar's Office Break-In; Police Suspect He Sought UVA Transcript Paper

A University of Virginia law student is jailed and facing breaking and entering charges.

The arrest of Joshua Peter Gomes by university police follows a break-in at the university registrar’s office that authorities were notified of yesterday, reports WVIR, an NBC affiliate.

Police suspect Gomes may have sought official transcript paper, the WVIR article says. A university police lieutenant told the Daily Progress that officials found transcript paper during a search of the law student’s home.

Gomes, who also faces a burglary tools possession charge, is scheduled for a bond hearing in Charlottesville General District Court on Dec. 12.
