Southern Miss cornerback Ed Wilkins admitted to police that he and another man planned an armed robbery of a Hattiesburg residence on Friday morning.

He is on indefinite suspension as USM looks into the incident.

Wilkins, 21, and 19-year-old Michael Bailey were booked into Forrest County Jail a little after 6 a.m. Friday on the felony charges. Bail was set at $75,000 for both men.

According to an incident report, Wilkins admitted to police that he and Bailey went to a Hattiesburg residence looking to steal money and drugs.

"This is a serious matter," USM coach Todd Monken said in a statement. "Ed has been removed from the program while we gather additional information."

Officers were dispatched to 235 Sherwood Drive in Hattiesburg early Friday morning after the report of an armed robbery, according to the incident report.

Officers first encountered Bailey, who said he was visiting ex-roommates there so he could smoke marijuana with them.

According to the report, Bailey said that a man, later identified as Wilkins, entered the residence displaying a black hand gun with a laser on it and wearing a ski mask. He demanded money and the drugs.

Bailey said he exited the house, but returned to get his keys and was denied entrance by the occupants.

The report said the three people in the residence all gave the same story.
