Law enforcement authorities served search warrants at three homes in San Luis Obispo on Thursday afternoon in connection with an alleged attempted robbery at a fraternity house Sunday that led to the arrests of five Cal Poly football players.

San Luis Obispo police, along with investigators from the San Luis Obispo County District Attorney’s Office and the county Sheriff’s Office, served the warrants at about 2 p.m. Thursday at places that police said were associated with the suspects, according to a news release.

Warrants were served at addresses in the 1500 block of Mill Street, the 1000 block of Oak Street and the 200 block of North Chorro Street, the release said.

Police are continuing to investigate the incident, which occurred early Sunday at the Delta Sigma Phi fraternity house on California Boulevard. Police arrested Cameron Marcel Akins, 19, after he allegedly held several fraternity members at gunpoint. Cortland Josiah Fort, 20, was arrested in a vehicle nearby, and three other suspects were arrested later that day on the Cal Poly campus: Kristan Sterling Ivory, 20; Domique Alize Love, 19; and Jake Anthony Brito, 18.

The suspects were booked into County Jail on Sunday on various charges related to robbery, and all have since posted bail.

As of Thursday, the District Attorney’s Office had yet to file charges on the five suspects, although an arraignment has been scheduled for Aug. 25 in San Luis Obispo Superior Court.
