AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Auburn coach Gus Malzahn has dismissed defensive end Elijah Daniel from the team, three days after the player’s arrest.

Malzahn announced the decision Saturday in a brief statement. Auburn police arrested Daniel and two other men on theft and burglary charges Wednesday night after an investigation into items missing from dormitory rooms following spring break.

Lee County jail records show the 21-year-old junior from Indianapolis was charged with four counts of theft and four more counts of burglary. Six of the charges are felonies. The most serious case against Daniel is first-degree theft, which involves property worth at least $2,500 or anything taken from another person.

DeNorris James and Khalil Sellers also were charged with burglary and theft.

Daniel played in 13 games last season and started twice.
