Oct. 10--It was a foul move from the coach.
A New Mexico high school football coach was arrested after video showed he took money from a player's wallet, police announced this week.
John D. Roanhaus, 42, of Clovis -- a town around 225 miles east of Albuquerque -- was arrested Saturday after cell phone video presented to police showed him enter the locker room and take money from a player's wallet at Miyamura High School in Gallup, according to a statement from New Mexico State Police.
Roanhaus was charged with burglary, a 4th degree felony, and larceny, a petty misdemeanor.
An arrest warrant showed that a student's mother contacted a police officer, and presented cell phone footage of Roanhaus taking two $20 bills from a wallet and putting it into his sock, Officer Nathaniel Renteria wrote.
Gallup-McKinsley County Schools Superintendent Mike Hyatt told The Gallup Independent that Roanhaus was fired following the incident.
Court records accessed by the Daily News show a preliminary examination hearing is scheduled for next Wednesday.
