2 more USU football players arrested in connection with burglaries

LOGAN — Police have arrested two more Utah State football players in connection with a string of burglaries late last year.

Kevin Meitzenheimer and Dayshawn Littleton were booked into the Cache County Jail Monday afternoon. Both 19-year-old men are suspected of witness tampering and obstructing justice. Meitzenheimer is also suspected of aggravated assault and failing to give his name to officers.

Both were later released after posting bail.

Logan City Police Chief Gary Jensen said Meitzenheimer and Littletons’s arrests were part of an ongoing investigation into the suspected thefts by two other football players, Troy Murray and Jaylan Brown. The other 19-year-old men were arrested April 5, suspected of stealing several video game consoles and games from two people’s homes. They were caught after trying to pawn the merchandise at a store near Salt Lake.

Prosecutors later charged Murray with burglary, a second-degree felony and theft, a class B misdemeanor. He is scheduled to appear in court May 8.

No charges have been filed against Brown, and formal charges against Meitzenheimer and Littleton are pending the investigation.

According to the USU Athletics Department, Littleton is from Carson, California and was signed as a defensive back in 2016. He is currently not listed on the football roster. Meitzenheimer is a redshirt freshman linebacker from Moreno Valley, California.
