A Trevecca men’s soccer player was arrested this morning for allegedly robbing a CVS pharmacy.

Jackson Boonstra, a freshman, is accused of robbing the store at 735 Harding Pike where he got away with about 500 pills from the pharmacy counter, according Metro police.

Metro officers received a tip that Boonstra, 19,  would arrive at a church parking lot on Belmont Park Terrace. The officers surveyed the parking lot until Boonstra arrived at 1:50 a.m. and he was taken into custody without incident, according to a Metro police news release.

Steve Harris, associate provost and dean of student development, said the university is aware of the incident, but that it’s too early to comment on Boonstra’s future at Trevecca.

Mark Elliot,Trevecca Athletic Director, said it’s also too early to comment on Boonstra’s status as a soccer player.

“We are aware of the situation. It has been communicated with the people in our department and student development and we are taking it very seriously, but we do not know enough at this point,” said Elliott.

Boonstra is being held on a $100,000 bond.
