Kenny Buckner, 23, a senior who played his last game with Boise State in the NCAA basketball tournament last month, was charged with misdemeanor petit theft Saturday.
Boise police also arrested Brandi Latrall Henton, 20, on a misdemeanor petit theft charge. Henton is a sophomore on the BSU women's basketball team. Boise State officials said Monday Henton has been suspended indefinitely.
Boise State men's basketball coach Leon Rice couldn't be reached for comment.
Police say Buckner and Henton went into a store in the 8300 block of West Overland Road just before 4:30 p.m. Saturday, concealed several food items and left the store "making no attempt to pay for them."
Boise police did not identify the business, but the 8300 block of West Overland is the location of the West Boise Walmart.
Buckner and Henton were booked into the Ada County Jail on Saturday evening and released after posting bond.
An arraignment will be set for later this month.
Buckner is awaiting an April 16 jury trial on an unrelated petit theft charge after being charged by Boise police in January along with three other BSU players - Derrick Marks, Michael Thompson and Darrious Hamilton. All are charged with petit theft; in general, misdemeanor petit theft is charged in cases of items worth less than $1,000.
Thompson entered a guilty plea April 4. The other three cases are pending, according to Idaho court records.
It is unclear what the group is accused of stealing. In Thompson's case, prosecutors said that police reports indicate Thompson admitted to stealing some candy and "small stuff."
Store employees told officers at least one of the group took some DVDs, Boise city attorney officials said.
Marks, Thompson and Hamilton served one-game suspensions in January. Coaches suspended Buckner for three games.
Court records show Buckner pleaded guilty to another misdemeanor petit theft charge in June 2012 in connection with an incident in April 2012. Buckner was placed on unsupervised probation for one year and paid a fine of $301.90.
Buckner, a forward, came to Boise State after two seasons at the College of Southern Idaho and played two seasons for the Broncos.
He played in 58 games at Boise State, starting in 18, averaging 6.8 points and 4.9 rebounds per game. He was the lone senior on the 2012-13 team that reached the NCAA Tournament.
Henton, a guard, will be a junior next season. She was named the Mountain West's newcomer of the year last month after scoring 10.4 points per game in her first season with the Broncos. She had transferred from Yakima Valley Community College in Washington.
