University of Georgia chief of police Jimmy Williamson says an investigation found that three players - starting safety Tray Matthews, defensive linemen Jonathan Taylor and James DeLoach - received double payments for stipend checks of $71.50 issued by the Georgia athletic department.
Williamson says the players deposited the paper checks through a mobile device and also cashed the checks at a convenience store.
Wide receiver Uriah LeMay was charged with cashing a roommate's check after the check already had been deposited through a mobile app.
Georgia coach Mark Richt says in a statement Tuesday the matter ''will be handled in an appropriate way.''
