Ex-Suns player Dumas arrested in pre-holiday roundup of theft suspects
Former Phoenix Suns player Richard Dumas is among 151 people arrested in a pre-holiday roundup of theft suspects in Arizona.
The U.S. Marshals Service says Dumas was arrested Thursday in Litchfield Park on a warrant charging him with eight counts of organized retail theft.
Marshals Service spokesman Frederick Freeman says the charges against Dumas result from a Maricopa County indictment, but he didn’t immediately have further information.
Dumas was booked into a Maricopa County jail late Thursday, and it’s not immediately known whether he has a lawyer.
Dumas played for the Suns from 1992 to 1995.
The Marshals Service says the roundup was conducted Tuesday through Thursday by multiple agencies in the Phoenix, Tucson, Yuma and Flagstaff areas.
