Ex-UFC fighter Karl Roberson taken into custody for allegedly stealing jewels worth over $200,000

Karl Roberson, an ex-UFC fighter, appears to be in serious danger as he is accused of numerous felonies. The mixed martial artist who is currently in prison participated in other crimes that are being investigated, including a $200K jewelry theft.

It’s not uncommon for combat sports personalities to violate the rules and become involved in major offenses. Nevertheless, this time the 32-year-old fighter found himself involved in several crimes at once, and it appears that there would be no way out for Karl. 

What accusations do the police make against Karl Roberson?

Police initially apprehended Roberson for driving a car that was actually utilized in the Howell Township burglary over the course of last Christmas. In addition to being exploited in a burglary, the vehicle contained a lot of questionable items that might have been used in a crime.

The middleweight MMA fighter was arrested on March 27 and is still being looked at by law enforcement agencies. In addition to being linked to the burglary, Baby K also appears to have illegal weapons in his possession. Details of his crimes were released in a formal statement by the local police.

“During the search officers found a defaced .9mm handgun with an extended magazine, several packages of suspected ‘crack cocaine,’ marijuana and items related to the burglary,” said police. 

Roberson has a 9-6-0 record in his mixed martial arts career. The middleweight fighter defeated Darren Stewart in his UFC debut in 2017. Unfortunately, Karl was denied the opportunity to renew his UFC contract last year after losing four in a row.

There seems to be very little possibility that Karl Roberson will ever enter the octagon again, based on the crimes he is associated with. What do you think will happen to Karl Roberson? Let us know what you think in the comment area.
