New Details in Arrest of Robert Castaneda

New details from EverythingLubbock have emerged regarding the arrest and dismissal of Robert Castaneda.

Via EverythingLubbock, new details have emerged regarding the arrest of former Texas Tech football player Robert Castaneda. I encourage you to read the whole thing, but to make a long story short, Castaneda and two other football players broke into a home and stole some guns around Christmas.  The authorities (for lack of a better identifier as to police or other law enforcement) took some time to track down the stolen guns:

Police took the gun from the business and returned it to the owner.  This led to the name of a man that police tracked.  They tracked him to a gun show on April 23 at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center.  He told police he had no idea that five guns he bought from Robert Castaneda for $1,400 were stolen.

Police confronted Castaneda on May 3 at home.  He admitted what happened, and provided more of the stolen guns.  He refused to name who else was with him in the burglary, but said they were also football players.  He eventually gave up their jersey numbers.

Two days later Texas Tech announced that Castaneda, Trace Ellison and Dakota Allen were all removed from the football team for failure to uphold student athlete standards.

There’s more detail there and I encourage you to take a look. As you will all recall, Castaneda, Allen and Ellison were dismissed from the football team on May 5, 2016.
