West Virginia basketball player Pat Forsythe and one of his former teammates, Tommie McCune, were arrested Thursday night in Morgantown and charged with petit larceny, according to a report in the Dominion Post.

Citing a police report, the newspaper reported both took items from a wallet found by Forsythe's roommate, including debit cards and $8 cash.

Forsythe reportedly gave the debit cards to McCune, who handed one of them to a third party. They bought food for themselves and WVU teammate Aric Dickerson (who was not charged) at a restaurant called Qdoba,

McCune later charged a total of almost $150 to the cards at a pair of Morgantown bars.

"We are aware of the situation," coach Bob Huggins said in a statement released by the school and obtained by the Dominion Post. "We will let the judicial process take its course and the matter will be handled internally."

McCune, a native of Saginaw, Mich., left the team just before the NCAA Tournament as the program announced his intention to transfer. He played in 13 games as a true freshman in 2011-12. In August, he was accused of shoplifting from a Wal-Mart store in Michigan. He later pled guilty to that charge.

Forsythe had an injury-plagued true freshman season, sitting out after back spasms became a recurring issue. He played in seven games, and the school filed for a medical redshirt for Forsythe, which would allow him to return as a freshman in 2012-13.
