Former Eastern Kentucky University football player Marque Kirkendoll was arrested in connection with the robbery of a mail carrier.
The defensive back was arrested and charged in connection with the Jan. 18 robbery which occurred in New Mexico. Kirkendoll was accused of brandishing a gun as well as stealing a key that he used to open lock boxes and mailbags.
He also faces aiding and abetting as well as conspiracy charges.
Kirkendoll’s alleged accomplice is former New Mexico University football player Rayshawn Boyce. According to ESPN, Boyce was arrested in February. Boyce was a linebacker for the Lobos and hails from Compton, California.
Kirkendoll transferred from UNM to Eastern Kentucky at the beginning of the year. The 21-year-old Chicago native was suspended the day after news of his arrest got to the school. He is no longer enrolled at Eastern Kentucky.
