GLENVILLE, W.Va. -- Two former West Virginia football players are under arrest for allegedly robbing a supermarket.
Travis Garvin and Alvoid Mays who later played for six seasons in the NFL, were being held Monday in the Central Regional Jail in Flatwoods, each on $200,000 bond, State Police spokesman Sgt. Jay Powers said.
Authorities say one of the men held up two clerks at gunpoint Friday night in Glenville, and demanded money from the store's registers and safe. He was picked up by the other man in a compact car, but they crashed it after they were followed by Glenville police, Powers said.
The men fled into the woods but were ultimately arrested and the recovered money was returned to the store, Powers said.
The 25-year-old Garvin, of Bradenton, Fla., was a wide receiver for the Mountaineers from 2002 to 2003. Mays, 38, of Palmetto, Fla., was a defensive back on West Virginia's 1988 team that played for the national championship in the Fiesta Bowl, then played for the Washington Redskins and Pittsburgh Steelers.
