Two Husker football players cited on suspicion of ordering pizza with stolen credit card information

LINCOLN — Two Nebraska football players were cited in February on suspicion of misdemeanor theft in connection with a complaint that someone bought pizza with stolen credit card information.

According to University of Nebraska-Lincoln Sgt. Douglas Petersen, Chad Alioth and Caleb Tannor were cited with theft by deception after Alioth allegedly used an app to order pizza. Tannor allegedly paid Alioth $10 to order the pizza, which Alioth then sent to the app via PayPal. The app apparently uses stolen credit card information, as UNL police received a complaint in January regarding a charge for pizza delivered to UNL’s campus.

Petersen said UNL police still are trying to track down the owner of the app. Alioth, a sophomore wideout, was cited Feb. 8, while Tannor, a freshman outside linebacker, was cited Feb. 11.

As of Wednesday evening, neither had charges filed against them in Lancaster County Court.
