Earlier this week, first round draft pick Roquan Smith had his car burglarized. The suspected thief escaped with several big ticket items including Smith’s helmet and jersey from Georgia’s national title game loss against Alabama.
The alleged suspect has been tabbed as Georgia student Landyn Shane Durham, according to a report from WSB-TV Atlanta.
Durham was arrested after police officers were able to get fingerprints from Roquan Smith’s vehicle.
From the report:
Police have arrested the 20-year-old man accused of stealing items that belonged to former University of Georgia football star Roquan Smith.
Landyn Shane Durham, a UGA student, was charged with two counts of entering auto and surrendered late Thursday, according to Officer Epifanio Rodriguez with Athens-Clarke County police. Durham was released early Friday after posting $22,200 bond, jail records showed.
Durham nearly got away with a handful of items. Here’s what he lifted from Smith’s car:
Among the items stolen:
— An iPad belonging to the Bears (there were no additional details about what was on the tablet).
— A 2017 national championship jersey.
— A 2017 Rose Bowl jersey.
— Two watches.
— Smith’s 2017 regular-season helmet and jersey.
— A Bluetooth speaker.
Durham also allegedly broke into a Georgia lacrosse players car, stealing a jersey, among other items. Most of Smith’s belongings were found in Durham’s apartment, according to police. However, a few other item were found at Durham’s family’s home in Summerville.
Smith was the No. 8 overall selection in the 2018 NFL Draft by the Chicago Bears. He would have been able to replace most of the stolen property, but his uniform from the title game and Rose Bowl is a different story.
