It probably wasn’t hard to track down this burglary suspect—at all.
LSU offensive lineman, Adrian Magee, has been suspended indefinitely from the team after a warrant was issued for his arrest. Magee is accused of simple burglary, but the reason this story is making headlines goes far beyond any laws he allegedly broke.
Baton Rouge Police say the victim returned home to his apartment off W. Chimes street just before midnight on April 1. He found his apartment door forced open and soon realized he was missing electronics, cash and more.
The victim tells police he was still surveying his apartment when Magee poked his head in to ask if he had been robbed. The victim, an LSU fan, immediately recognized the offensive lineman—especially since he was wearing clothing with his jersey number.
After the victim told Magee he was going to check the cameras, the LSU lineman left the apartment and soon returned with some of the victim’s missing items.
an Xbox gaming console, six Xbox games, Gucci flip flops, an Onyx bluetooth speaker, and $1,200 cash were stolen from the apartment. The victim’s girlfriend’s purse was also dumped out and rifled through
Magee was suspended indefinitely for violating team rules according to LSU head coach Ed Orgeron after being arrested and booked on one count of “simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling.”
According to arrest report, LSU FB OL Magee admitted to victim of apt. burglary of theft & returned some/not all items.
