AUBURN, AL (WTVM) -

All of the Auburn University memorabilia allegedly stolen by three Auburn teens earlier this week have been recovered by police. 

The items include Bo Jackson's #34 football jersey, Cam Newton's BCS football helmet, and a National Championship football valued at several thousand dollars.

On Wednesday March 26, the Auburn Police Division arrested 19-year-old John D. Williams, 18-year-old Nicholas J. Calvin, and 18-year-old Zachary S. Keeler on felony warrants charging each of them with third degree burglary and first degree theft of property.

The three allegedly stole the memorabilia from the scholarship room at Jordan-Hare Stadium.

The arrests are the result of an ongoing investigation by the Auburn Police Division into a report of a theft of property, dated March 22, 2014, from a building in the 200 block of S. Donahue Drive.  Officers were informed that an unknown individual(s) entered the building while it was closed and stole sports apparel and equipment valued at more than $13,000. 

An investigation into the incident was initiated by the Detective Section. During the course of the investigation, Williams, Calvin and Keeler were developed as suspects.  All three were subsequently located and the property taken in the theft was recovered in their possession by police. 

Detectives obtained arrest warrants charging each of them with burglary third degree and theft of property first degree.  On Wednesday they surrendered themselves to detectives at the Auburn Police Division and were taken into custody. 

Williams, Calvin, and Keeler were transported to the Lee County Jail and will each be eligible for an $8,000 bond.
