Four Hofstra University basketball players were arrested Thursday for allegedly committing multiple burglaries in campus dorm rooms over the course of a month, Nassau County police said.
Twenty-year-old Shaquille Stokes and his three freshman teammates, Kentrell Washington, Jimmy Hall Jr. and Dallas Anglin—all 18 years old—were charged with varying counts of second-degree burglary. Police also charged Anglin with tampering with physical evidence.
Along with the criminal charges, the four players have been suspended from the university pending the outcome of the case, Hofstra said in a statement Friday morning.
The four players allegedly committed six burglaries in campus dorm rooms between Oct. 4 and Nov. 5., making off with cash, a Sony laptop, headphones, three MacBook Pro computers, an Apple iPod, two Apple iPad’s and an Apple iTouch, police said.
Hofstra’s Department of Public Safety worked with Nassau police during the investigation, officials said.
“Due to the nature of the charges, the four students have been immediately suspended from the University, including the basketball team, classes, residence halls and facilities,” the university said.
Stokes, Hall, Washington and Anglin will be arraigned Friday in Hempstead.
