NEWARK, Del. (CBS) – University of Delaware police arrested several Delaware State football players in connection with a couple of burglaries at a residence hall on May 18.
Video game systems and laptops were stolen from two apartments in Christiana West Tower residence hall.
So far, police have recovered one laptop and a Playstation 4. Two other laptops are still missing.
University of Delaware Police, with the assistance of Delaware State University Police, identified five male suspects and arrested them on May 20 and 21.
Cameren Judge, 21; Gabriel Sherrod, 20; Rashawn Barrett, 20; and Shubasz Gordon, 23, were all charged with two counts of burglary, three counts of theft and two counts of conspiracy. Additionally, Malik Golson, 19, was charged with three counts of receiving stolen property.
Sherrod and Barrett were committed to Vaughn Correctional Center in Smyrma, Delaware in lieu of $8,500 secured bond. Judge and Gordon were released on their own recognizance.
All of the men were issued no contact orders with the victims and are banned from University of Delaware property.
