Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – Syracuse Police have arrested four Syracuse University students, including two football players, in connection to three burglaries that were reported on campus.

Davon Walls and Markus Pierce-Brewster were charged with burglary in the second degree and petit larceny.

They also charged Erwing Augustin and Bradley Valik with two counts of burglary and two counts of petit larceny.

Police say the men stole Xbox video game systems, televisions, a Playstation video game system, and games from the residences on Winding Ridge Road, which is on the SU campus, on Feb. 23.

Police say the residents were home when the burglaries occurred.

All four are scheduled to be arraigned today in Syracuse City Court.

SU coach Scott Shafer offered a statement regarding the arrests:

"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."
