Geoff Burke

Hurricanes defensive back Thomas Finnie has been arrested for stealing a laptop from a dorm, and has been suspended from the team.

Miami Hurricanes defensive back Thomas Finnie was arrested on Tuesday and charged with occupied burglary and grand theft in connection to a Dec. 4 on-campus incident, according to Michael Casagrande of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. He has since been suspended, and is currently being held in the Dade County Jail. The charges are second and third-degree felonies, respectively.

Finnie is alleged to have broken into a room in the Pearson Residential College and stolen a laptop while the owner was still in the room. The University released a statement on Tuesday afternoon, stating that Finnie was immediately suspended. No timeline was given regarding his possible reinstatement to the team. Finnie was also arrested earlier this year in July for possession of marijuana.

Finnie, a sophomore and Miami native, started six games this season for the Hurricanes and appeared in all 12, compiling 30 tackles, an interception and three passes broken up.
