B.J. Knauf and Jordon Woods were arrested on Monday.
Both are wide receivers on the Purdue football team, and were released on Monday night after posting bond. The freshman were arrested on theft and placed in Tippecanoe County Jail, before posting bond.
The incident reportedly took place at the Tippecanoe Mall, where the Lafayette police were called to a Kohl’s store for the report of two mail shoplifters at 5:30 pm. Both Woods and Knaud were detained by Kohl’s loss prevention officers until police arrived.
The two are alleged to have stolen two tie bars, which have a $40 dollar value for the two. And the football players gave back the tie bars to the prevention officers, before police arrived.
Purdue has no comment on the matter, and Purdue’s athletic department and head football coach Darrell Hazell are aware of the situation. And they will let the legal process play out before taking any disciplinary action with the two players.
Woods has not played in a game yet this season, while Knauf has played in all five games. He has nine receptions for 95 yards, plus 11 rushes for 90 yards.
