ORONO - Two University of Maine baseball players have been suspended indefinitely from the team after they were arrested on burglary charges over the weekend.
Luke Morrill, 20, and Shane Bussey, 19 were arrested by the University of Maine police department on Saturday after allegedly burglarizing UMaine property.
According to the police report, on Saturday afternoon a witness saw two men taking equipment from the Woodsmen's shed in the UMaine forest. Orono police detained two men fitting the description of the suspects walking on foot, carrying two axes and a hatchet. UMPD arrested those two men, Morrill and Bussey, in the Hilltop parking lot, who were then taken to the Penobscot County Jail for booking.
Morrill, a pitcher from South Thomaston, ME who played for Rockland High School, appeared in 15 games in 2013 with 1 start. He amassed a record of 2-1 and a 5.12 ERA. Bussey, an infielder from Boynton Beach, FL, started 9 games and appeared in 20 total last year. He batted .340 with 1 HR and 12 RBIs.
