DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Two former University of Dayton basketball players wanted on burglary charges are now in custody.  Both made their first court appearances Thursday afternoon.

Jalen Robinson, 21, was booked into jail at 4:33 a.m.  He pleaded not guilty Thursday afternoon around 2:00 p.m.  It’ll take $25,000 to get him out of jail on bond.  We’ve learned that Robinson was enrolled in college in South Carolina.

Devon Scott, 20, was taken into custody at the jail at 10:28 a.m.  He, too, pleaded not guilty and is in jail on $25,000 bond.  He was living in Columbus with his mother at the time of his arrest.

Both are being held in jail on burglary charges.  Scott faces seven counts.  Robinson faces three.

They are accused of stealing from UD dorm rooms back in December 2014.  Both were dismissed from the team and later withdrew from the university.

Robinson and Scott are scheduled back into court for a hearing on April 6.
