Two Gator basketball players arrested on felony burglary charges

GAINESVILLE — Florida basketball players Cody Larson and Erik Murphy each face felony burglary charges stemming from their arrest early Sunday morning in St. Augustine. They have been released on bail.

Joshua Adel, who identified himself as a team manager, was charged with principal to burglary. He reportedly told police he was a lookout.

According to the police report, Larson and Murphy went into Scarlett O'Hara's Bar and Restaurant around 2 a.m. Sunday, claiming they had lost a wallet. Police said the men tried to get close to an employee who was counting money from the night.

Bouncers then told Larson and Murphy to leave. Moments later, according to the report, they saw the men breaking into a co-worker's car across the street. Murphy, a sophomore, was a reserve forward this past season. Larson was redshirted.
