CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) -Suspended Miami basketball guard Edwin Rios was arrested and jailed Wednesday on charges of burglary and grand theft, Miami-Dade County jail officials said.
Rios was booked Wednesday at 5:51 a.m. on two counts of burglarizing an unoccupied dwelling, and two counts of grand theft, according to the county's corrections department Web site.
It could not be immediately determined if Rios has an attorney.
He was suspended by the Hurricanes on Jan. 12 for violating team rules. It was not immediately clear if the suspension was related to the charges.
``We are aware of the situation,'' team spokeswoman Margaret Belch told The Associated Press, declining further comment.
Rios was released later in the day after posting bond, which was listed on the online records as $12,500 for the burglary counts and $5,000 apiece for the theft charges.
Jail officials said Wednesday evening they had no other information other than what was on the Web site, including which police agency in South Florida actually charged Rios.
n for Rios. He was also suspended briefly in December, then was sanctioned again two weeks ago over what the program called a lack of communication with coaches and violating team protocol.
Rios averaged 4.7 points and 12.3 minutes, starting four games this year for Miami.
