Report: Roquan Situation Coming To An End, UGA Student Turns Himself In


It looks like the Roquan Smith robbery situation is finally coming to end, minus the remaining legal matters to get through.

Smith, who is a victim of a robbery that took place in Athens last week, has since recovered most of the stolen items from his BMW X5. Some of the notable items that were taken include: A Bears issued Ipad, Smith’s Rose Bowl and national championship game jerseys, a 2017 University of Georgia football helmet, a Georgia “Athlete of the Year” trophy, four pairs of Bose headphones, a Bose Bluetooth speaker, two watches (Michael Kors and KYBOE), a pair of Costa sunglasses and a pair of Nike athletic shoes.

On Thursday night, according to the Athens Clarke County Jail Records, the alleged Georgia student involved in the theft of Smith’s personal belongings is identified as 20-year-old Landyn Shane Durham of Summerville, GA. Marc Weiszer of the Athens Banner Herald reports that Durham turned himself into Athens-Clarke County police on Thursday night, was booked on felony charges and then released Friday morning on $32,200 bail.

Durham turning himself in came after officers were already able to identify him based on fingerprints taken off Smith’s BMW X5. Chip Towers of DawgNation reported on this on Wednesday.

A full statement from Athens-Clarke County officer Epifanio Rodriguez can be found below:

“We contacted the Summerville Police Department and made them aware of the stolen property possibly inside of that residence. Contact was made with the resident and the jerseys and all that other stuff was located at the residence in Summerville. We don’t believe that Summerville resident was involved or is a suspect in any way. All of the victim’s property outside of the iPad has been returned to him. An arrest has not been made yet. However, warrants for felony entering auto are forthcoming.”

It remains to be seen what the punishment will be for Durham, if convicted, but the legal process appears to be moving as expected on this high-profile case.
