This just in from the "Kleptomania Runs Wild!" department: BYU linebacker Sione Takitaki is facing charges of misdemeanor theft for taking school soccer and track team apparel that didn't belong to him.



According to The Salt Lake Tribune, the alleged thefts happened in July, when Takitaki was working on the custodial staff of BYU's Smith Fieldhouse.

"Police reports obtained by The Salt Lake Tribune show that on July 10, Takitaki allegedly took a BYU track jacket valued at $200 from an office in the field house. On July 21, Takitaki stole $280 worth of soccer apparel, a second report alleges."

Takitaki was reportedly cooperative with police, who have retrieved all of the stolen property. 

A date of August 27 has been set for Takitaki's arraignment hearing at the Provo City Justice Court in Provo, Utah. 

Takitaki has been suspended by BYU for the Cougars' season opener against Nebraska on Sept. 5.
