The University of Alabama’s Mal. M. Moore Athletic Facility was burglarized earlier this week and four Mississippi State students have been arrested for the alleged break-in. According to Stephanie Taylor of the Tuscaloosa News, the four men involved were captured on security cameras breaking into the facility before making away with “various items of memorabilia from within.”
The four men involved were arrested on a felony third-degree burglary charge Monday and released the same day on $7,500 bond.
Samuel Tanner Fittes, 21, of Columbus, Mississippi; John Thomas Badley, 20, of Laurel, Mississippi; Joel Harper Hudnall, 20, of Madison, Mississippi; and Joshua Jordan, 21, of Starkville, Mississippi are the four students from Mississippi State who allegedly burglarized the facility.
“Mississippi State is cooperating with authorities in this investigation,” MSU chief communications officer Sid Salter said in a statement, via WVUA 23. “The young men will have to bear responsibility for their actions, whatever they were. The legal process will play out. MSU doesn’t have a role in the legal process, but will monitor that process.”
