Four Hofstra basketball players were arrested Friday morning on various counts of burglary, the school announced.

Shaquille Stokes, Jimmy Hall, Kentrell Washington and Dallas Anglin are scheduled for arraignment Friday, Newsday reported. According to the paper, Stokes is charged with five counts of second-degree burglary, Hall with four counts, Washington with two counts and Anglin with one count.

“The four students have been immediately suspended from the University, including the basketball team, classes, residence hall and facilities, pending the outcome of the case,” school spokesman Steven Gorchov said in a statement.
