Oklahoma safety Will Sunderland was charged with a felony count of second-degree burglary on Wednesday, just days after a separate warrant was issued for his arrest on a misdemeanor complaint of concealing stolen property.

Sunderland is accused of selling a pair of stolen video game systems and controllers to an electronics store in Oklahoma City.

As for Wednesday's charge, Sunderland is accused of taking the electronics from an Oklahoma dorm. According to Oklahoma City police, the property was taken March 15 and sold later that day.

A probable cause affidavit filed in Cleveland County states police used surveillance footage and school ID swipe logs to tie Sunderland to the burglary, the Tulsa World reported Thursday.

Sunderland has turned himself in and posted $2,000 bond in Oklahoma City for the misdemeanor charge Wednesday. He entered a not guilty plea in his arraignment and has a court date set for July 20 in Oklahoma County.

On Monday, Sooners coach Lincoln Riley announced that Sunderland has been suspended indefinitely.

Sunderland recorded 15 tackles and an interception while playing in eight games last season.
