(LRN) — More than a dozen UL-Lafayette football players have been suspended indefinitely from the team after allegedly robbing a dorm room on campus. Lt. Billy Abrams with the UL-Lafayette Police Department says 13 football players stole several items from a room in Huger Hall.

“They took several items totaling approximately $2,400. During the course of the investigation, video surveillance was obtained, and we were able to identify who these students were,” Abrams said.

Abrams says at this time, police are unsure what led the football players to commit this crime. He says all of the students are charged with conspiracy to commit felony theft.

“All of the students turned themselves in to Lafayette Parish Correctional Center, and they all cooperated throughout the investigation. We were able to recover all of the items that were stolen,” Abrams said.

Head football coach Mark Hudspeth issued a statement saying, “On behalf of our football program, I would like to apologize to Cajun Nation and the University. We do not condone the behavior that was represented and we expect higher standards of our student-athletes. We work diligently every day to guide, educate and develop these young men, so it is disappointing when we do not meet those standards. We will be respectful of the legal process as it runs its course."
