Orange County deputies arrested a second man on Friday in a robbery near Full Sail University.

Deputies said Dewitt Love was working with Derek Rucker, 28, who was earlier this month in a robbery at the Indigo Apartments near State Road 436 and University Boulevard.

Deputies said on Wednesday, the victim contacted deputies with the location of his stolen laptop and the investigation led them to Rucker.

Rucker was charged with robbery with a firearm.

Investigators said they are looking at Rucker in at least six other cases that occurred off-campus in the area where they say someone has been targeting students with backpacks coming home from class.

The investigation into those robberies is ongoing.
