Last week a Lee County (AL) grand jury indicted four former Auburn University football players on felony robbery charges stemming from a March 11 incident at a local trailer park. Michael McNeil, Antonio Goodwin, Shaun Kitchens and Dakota Mosley each face five counts of first-degree robbery, one count of first-degree burglary and one count of third-degree theft of property in connection with the alleged robbery.
Worth noting that the Lee County District Attorney’s Office submitted a witnesses list for the case that included current Auburn star running back Michael Dyer and current AU football players Neiko Thorpe, Anthony Morgan and Deangelo Benton.
So what drove the four former Auburn players to risk their football scholarships to the school?
In one indictment of all four of the accused ex-AU players last week, the Lee County Grand Jury gave us a pretty good clue:
“[Michael McNeil, Antonio Goodwin, Shaun Kitchens and Dakota Mosley ] did knowingly obtain or exert unauthorized control over one (1) safe, the property of [victim name redacted] of the aggregate value of One Dollar ($1.00), with the intent to deprive the owner of said property.”
Now there’s a bad break.
Who could’ve possibly known a safe house at an Auburn-area trailer park offered no quarter?
