CLEMSON, S.C. -

Clemson University Police have added several items that won't be allowed in Memorial Stadium on football game days.

Police won't allow coolers, briefcases, luggage, computer bags and camera bags inside Death Valley during the 2013 home schedule. The university already banned backpacks, tote bags, brown paper bags and other large carryall-type bags after 9/11.

Football fans are still allowed to carry purses, diaper bags, medically necessary items, binocular cases and seat cushions into the stadium, but they are subject to search.

Fans will be directed to screening areas at gates 1, 5, 9, 11, 13, 16 and 20. CPD recommends fans arrive at the stadium at least an hour before kickoff.

Any prohibited items found during security screening won't be checked, but fans will be asked to return them to their vehicles.

Clemson continues to allow pass-outs this season, which means fans can leave and be readmitted to Memorial Stadium at designated entrances. Those fans will still be checked by security when returning to Memorial Stadium.

    Deputies say the burglar attempted to force his way in through the main pedestrian entrance to the building. However, that door has an alarm. Investigators believe, upon hearing the alarm activate, the thief removed the power meter to the building, which silenced the alarm.
