A man accused of stealing an assortment of items from a Mississippi State University fraternity house was arrested Monday and returned to Starkville.

Denarious Deshawn Evans, 18, was arrested in Canton, and returned to Starkville where he faces three counts of burglary of a dwelling.

According to his indictment, Evans entered the Sigma Alpha Epsilon House and attempted to steal property of three individuals in the dwelling. He was released from Oktibbeha County Jail Tuesday, after posting a bail of $10,000 per charge or $30,000.

MSU Police Chief Vance Rice said the event took place during the MSU football game against the University of Florida on Sept. 29, 2018. Rice said Evans allegedly stole several items from the house including clothing, boots, a watch, an engagement ring and a pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses.

Rice said residents of the fraternity house noticed Evans’ presence and immediately called MSUPD, who initially arrested him.

Evans was indicted by a grand jury on Jan. 10, but did not show up to court, putting a warrant out for his arrest.
