What seemed inevitable on Saturday morning, after Giants cornerback DeAndre Baker first turned himself in, has now happened. Seahawks cornerback Quinton Dunbar, wanted on alleged armed robbery charges, turned himself in to Miramar Police on Saturday afternoon, according to the department.

Dunbar’s surrender to Miramar Police comes a day after his story took a turn with new developments. Michael Grieco, Dunbar’s lawyer, told members of the media on Friday that he had sworn affidavits from five witnesses that would exonerate Dunbar of the alleged armed robbery.
Just spoke with Seahawks CB Quinton Dunbar's attorney, Michael Grieco, who says he has sworn affidavits from 5 witnesses that say Dunbar was not involved in the alleged armed robbery this week. Grieco says Miramar PD is still insisting that Dunbar turn himself in. More coming:— Cameron Wolfe (@CameronWolfe) May 15, 2020
However, despite Grieco’s insistent denial of Dunbar’s involvement in the armed robbery, the Miramar Police Department maintained their stance that Dunbar and Baker had to turn themselves in.

“If anyone wants to walk into the Miramar P.D. & share something that contradicts the details in our warrant, they’re more than welcome to do so.”
They have four victims who provided sworn statements under oath about what transpired.
Shortly after news of Dunbar’s surrender broke, Michael Grieco issued a statement on the matter, continuing the defense of his client.
Today our client Quintin Dunbar voluntarily surrendered at the Broward County jail pursuant to a bogus arrest warrant based solely on uncorroborated witness statements that have since been recanted. As I write this an innocent man sits in jail, facing charges that hold no water. pic.twitter.com/HkIps6x04u— Michael Grieco (@Mike_Grieco) May 16, 2020
Dunbar will appear in court on Sunday morning to determine his bond.
Dunbar is scheduled to appear in front of a judge tomorrow morning. That is when Dunbar’s bond will be determined.— Dugar, Michael-Shawn (@MikeDugar) May 16, 2020
More to come.
