SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Two Syracuse University football players are among four SU students arrested on burglary and larceny charges.
They were arrested following three burglaries last month at apartments on Winding Ridge Road on SU's south campus.
Police said defensive-end Markus Pierce-Brewster and defensive-tackle Davon Walls stole a TV, Xbox, iPods, and Xbox games from an apartment, while the residents were sleeping.
They've been charged with second-degree burglary and petit larceny.
Police said the victims, Erwing Augustin, 20, and Bradley Valik, 20, then turned around and burglarized two other apartments on the same street, the same day, to replace the items that were stolen from them.
Augustin and Valik are charged with two counts of second-degree burglary and two counts of petit larceny. The investigation is on-going.
Scott Shafer, the head coach for the SU football team, released the following statement:
"We are very disappointed and do not in any way condone the alleged behavior that resulted in these charges. This does not represent the core values of our program or the conduct expected of student-athletes representing Syracuse football. We will be following the judicial process and will act accordingly.”
