CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

A Meigs County grand jury has indicted a former University of Tennessee football player on burglary charges.

Cameron Mayo is facing aggravated burglary and theft charges in connection to four separate incidents that occurred between November 26 and December 2, 2014.

Court documents show he is accused of taking a slew of items including flat screen TVs, collectable coins, tools, a gaming system and revolver.

Mayo was booked at the Meigs County Jail following the indictment, but was released on a $10,000 bond. He's due in court on July 27.

This is not the first time Mayo has faced criminal charges.

In June of 2011, Mayo was charged with stealing from storm victims in Bradley County after the April tornadoes that ravaged the region. He was suspected of taking a refrigerator that was outside a home, and selling it for scrap metal.
