NORMAL, Ill. (AP) -Two Illinois State football players were charged with stealing a classmate's wallet and were dismissed from the team.
Cameron Cyril Thompkins, 18, of Sanford, Fla., and Micha Gordon, 19, of Peoria, were removed from the squad Thursday because of ``violations of team rules,'' athletic department spokesman Todd Kober said.
The alleged theft happened in late September near the campus, police said Sunday. The players weren't arrested until Thursday, when the state's attorney issued a warrant after reviewing the case. Each posted a $500 cash bond.
The wallet belonged to a 19-year-old Illinois State student and contained about $50 in a cash and several credit cards, police said.
Gordon, a wide receiver, played in three games this season for the Red Birds (4-5). Thompkins, a defensive back, did not play.
No telephone listing for Thompkins or Gordon was available in Normal and e-mails sent to their school accounts were not immediately returned.
