UCF redshirt freshman defensive lineman Raymond Cutts was arrested Monday by the Orlando Police Department and charged with carrying a concealed firearm and grand theft in the third degree, according to an Orange County Clerk of Court records search.
According to the Orlando Sentinel, Cutts denied he knew anything about the gun but the two passengers quickly pointed the finger at him.
Cutts was the only person in the backseat, where officers found an empty bag with marijuana residue and a Glock G27 semiautomatic handgun with a loaded magazine facing toward the front of the vehicle and concealed under the seat.
Cutts denied he knew anything about the gun, but the officer stated Cutts was a suspect in an investigation into the theft of a car and the same gun five days earlier in an area Cutts frequently visited.
The University of Central Florida released this statement on the arrest of Cutts:
“UCF Athletics officials are aware of the matter involving Raymond Cutts and have no further comment as we learn additional details about the situation.”
