Boise State basketball players charged with theft

BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) - Two Boise State basketball players have been arrested for theft over the weekend at a local store.

Boise Police says Kenneth Buckner, 23, and Brandi L. Henton, 20, are accused of concealing several items and left the store without paying for the items.

Officers say Buckner and Henton entered the store with the intent to commit the crime and have been charged with misdemeanors.

This is the third arrest for Buckner in the past year. The senior center, who played his final game for Boise State during last month's loss to La Salle in the NCAA tournament, pleaded guilty to theft, paid a fine of more than $300, and was given one-year probation.

He is awaiting a jury trial for a theft charge stemming from a January arrest.

Boise State athletics told KBOI-TV that it was aware of the situation and is following the student code of conduct policy. In the meantime, Henton has been suspended indefinitely from the basketball team.

The sophomore junior college transfer was voted Mountain West Women's Basketball new-comer of the year this season.
