RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - This morning, two of the three University of Richmond baseball players accused of burglary and grand larceny appeared briefly before a Richmond judge for their attorney status hearings.

Andrew Lowry and Blake Geiger faced the judge separately to confirm they will get legal representation.

Lowry and Geiger are from Texas and Maryland, respectively. They along with a third player, Jacob Mayers of Hanover, were charged with burglary and grand larceny stemming from their arrests on March 24.

According to the arrest warrants, each man is accused of breaking into on-campus student housing and stealing items including a video game system, video games, controllers, and computer speakers. The alleged crimes took place during UR's spring break.

When asked about the status of on-campus security, school spokesperson Linda Evans said today via e-mail, "The physical security of University of Richmond residence halls is excellent and no needed changes have been identified. Students are reminded often to lock their residence hall doors whenever they are away."

Geiger has another attorney status hearing on April 23, but is expected to join Lowry and Mayers in a separate court appearance May 25.
