Three students at Louisiana State University have been arrested and charged after they allegedly stole a John Deere vehicle from the football team’s locker room in the early hours of Sunday, February 24.
According to LSU campus police, security camera footage recorded around 2:30 a.m. on the 24th showed three men — later identified 22-year-old Tyler Jones, 21-year-old Daryl Lally, and 22-year-old Robert Nicklas — stealing a John Deere vehicle from the LSU football team’s locker room before driving it to the Huey P. Long Fieldhouse.
The three men and the vehicle — a Gator XUV utility vehicle valued at $10,818 — were spotted by campus police before 3 a.m. near the intersection of Dalrymple Drive and Cypress Drive, according to The Advocate.
Police say that two of the suspects attempted to quickly leave the scene. While the three suspects initially refused to disclose where they stole the vehicle from, an LSU property tag confirmed that it was owned by the LSU football equipment staff.
Jones, Lally, and Nicklas have all been charged with one count of theft of a motor vehicle in the incident. Additionally, Lally was charged with an additional count of driving while intoxicated.
At the time of this writing, there is no information on whether or not the university plans to punish the three students.
