ISU sophomore wide receiver Albert Gary turned himself in to the Story County Sheriff’s Office on Tuesday morning.

After a warrant for his arrest was filed the previous day, Gary posted a bond of $25,000 later Tuesday.

Gary, 22, has been charged with first-degree robbery, a class B felony.

According to a news release issued by ISU Police Capt. Aaron Delashmutt, ISU Police responded to a call from a man claiming to have been robbed at gunpoint on Central Campus on June 19.

The man said he was approached by approximately six men and that one brandished what appeared to be a handgun before patting him down.

Police arrived on the scene to find the group of men fleeing to the north and gave chase, and while they never caught up, they were able to recover four pellet guns.

Further investigation yielded Gary, senior in liberal studies, as a possible suspect, identified by several witnesses.

In addition to the first-degree robbery charge and upcoming court date on Nov. 28, Gary has already served a three-game suspension for his alleged involvement.
