Magee, 20, was arrested Wednesday on one count of felony simple burglary. LSU coach Ed Orgeron later suspended him indefinitely.
Baton Rouge Police spokesman Don Coppola Jr. said Magee's charges stem from an April 1 theft at an apartment from where multiple items, including $1,200 and a speaker, were stolen.
Coppola says Magee returned to the scene when the victim came home. He says when the victim told Magee he planned to check surveillance video to determine who robbed the place, Magee brought back some of the missing items.
