Former LU Administrator Charged Again for Home Break-ins
Rustburg, VA - The former director of convocation at Liberty University is in trouble with the law yet again.
Scott Ray was arrested in Campbell County on May 31, charged with two counts of breaking and entering, and grand larceny.
This isn't the first time Ray has found himself behind bars. It also isn't the first time home security video has helped put him there.
Three years ago, the former LU administrator served 18 months in prison for the same crime. In 2009, home surveillance video caught Ray red-handed sneaking into a neighbor's home and stealing bottles of Tramadol and Hydrocodone. The owner of the home set up the camera because he says his pills had been disappearing for months.
Most recently, Campbell County deputies say Ray admitted to three home break-ins last month, and stealing prescription pills and cash.
Investigators say surveillance video captured him pulling into the driveway of one home and a mail carrier wrote down his license plate at another.
Investigators say there's no indication Ray knew any of his victims.
"His description to me was, he would go to homes that didn't have any cars in the driveway, go up, knock on the door, wait a reasonable amount of time - if nobody comes to there door, he just makes entry," explained Tracy Emerson with the Campbell County Sheriff's Office.
Ray was on probation when the most recent break-ins occurred. He could face twelve years in prison on the old charges alone.
Ray's being held in Campbell County jail without bond. His next court appearance is scheduled for June 11.
