University of Central Florida Football Player Arrested for Armed Home Invasion
Justin Hodges, 20, of Orlando, and now former member of the University of Central Florida Knights Football Team, along with his girlfriend Nevaeh Mosher, 21, were arrested by the Orlando Police Department after they pulled off an armed home invasion at an apartment along West Church Street.
According to the victim, several men wearing masks and carrying firearms rushed into his apartment along West Church Street. Once inside, the group beat the victim, threatened him with guns, and stole his cell phone and recording equipment.
According to The Orlando Police Department, the victim and his ex-girlfriend Mosher argued after she came back to the apartment the previous night wearing clothing belonging to Hodges. The victim threw away the clothing, which caused Mosher to tell Hodges about the incident.
According to OPD, Mosher, Hodges, and two other men entered the complex, forced their way into the apartment, beat the victim, and took the victim’s property while armed.
A Surveillance video showed the subjects entering and exiting the complex, and police found the discarded clothing on a nearby breezeway, Orlando Police detectives said. The clothes had been issued to Hodges from The UCF athletic team and had his name on them.

The University of Central Florida’s Athletics Department released a statement saying Hodges was on the football team but has now been dismissed from the program.
“Per university policy, the UCF student conduct process will be initiated,” UCF said.
Detectives said they spoke with Mosher afterward, who eventually gave them a full confession as to her involvement in the robbery, saying she was the one who knocked on the victim’s door to get him to answer it.
Hodges was arrested Thursday, telling detectives he was trying to help Mosher get her belongings back from inside the apartment, police said.
Mosher faces a charge of home invasion robbery. Hodges faces a charge of home invasion robbery with a firearm and mask.
Pro Tip Justin: don’t throw away your future on something this stupid, but I guess it’s too late.
Orlando Police are still searching for the other two men involved. Anyone with information on the robbery is urged to contact the Orlando Police department at 321-235-5300 or Crimeline at 1-800-423-TIPS.
