GREELEY, Neb. -- A suspect has been arrested on suspicion of burglarizing the home of the brother of Nebraska punter Sam Foltz, who died in a car crash this summer.

Greeley County Sheriff David Weeks says the man was arrested Tuesday, after having already been arrested on other charges in York County. Weeks declined to give the suspect's name, saying he has not yet been charged.

The burglary happened sometime after the Foltz family left home around noon to attend Saturday's game in Lincoln and before they returned around 3 a.m. Sunday. The thieves took tools and a television, altogether worth about $1,400, from Jordan Foltz's home and vehicle in rural Greeley, Nebraska.

Sam Foltz, who would have been a senior at Nebraska this fall, died in a car crash in Wisconsin in July along with former Michigan State punter Mike Sadler.

Foltz's parents presented a scholarship in his name, and two of his nephews helped lead the team out before Saturday's game against Fresno State.
