BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

One of three men accused of a crime spree near LSU this week has a message for his mother. He delivered it to television cameras on his way to jail Thursday night.

The first of three suspects in the rash of robberies in and around LSU had very little to say has he headed to jail. His friend, on the other hand, was a little more open once he started talking.

Reporter:  Anything you want to say, man?

Suspect:   Naw - I don't want to say anything

Reporter:  Your friend says you're innocent

Suspect:  I'm innocent

Reporter:  You didn't do it?

Suspect:  Naw - I didn't do nothing.  I'm innocent

Reporter:  Anything you want to say to your family?

Suspect:    I love my momma, man

LSU Police say the three men took part in robberies Monday night. They credit the victims and witnesses for helping police crack the case.

"Other persons that were in the area were able to give us some fairly detailed information from what they had seen that evening and that played a big part in this case as well," said Capt. Cory Lalonde.

Tips led police to the car believed to be used that night, and detectives say that was their tipping point. They thank observant witnesses and remind everyone that LSU is like a small city and is not immune to crime.

"You can't predict when crimes are going to happen or where they're going to happen.  We're not immune to crime on the LSU campus," said Lalonde.
