Police: High school coach stole $40 from player's wallet

By The Associated Press

CLOVIS, N.M. (AP) — A New Mexico football coach has been fired and is facing criminal charges after authorities say a student used cellphone video to catch him taking money from a player's wallet.

State Police arrested Miyamura High School coach John D. Roanhaus on Saturday following a review of the footage showing the 42-year-old man entering the school's locker room and taking $40 from the wallet, court documents said.

According to an arrest warrant, officer Nathaniel Renteria was contacted by a student's mother who showed the officer the cell phone video. Renteria said the video showed Roanhaus walking into the locker area, searching a black wallet and taking two $20 bills before stuffing the money into his sock.

The mother told Renteria it wasn't the first time that players had experienced thefts in the locker room, but Roanhaus is currently only charged with a single theft.

Gallup-McKinley County Schools Superintendent Mike Hyatt told the Gallup Independent that Roanhaus was fired.

Roanhaus had been the head coach of Miyamura High School in Gallup since 2018.

Roanhaus is the youngest son of New Mexico Hall of Fame coach Eric Roanhaus.

He was charged with larceny and non-residential burglary and ordered held on $2,000. No attorney is listed for Roanhaus and he has not been assigned a public defender, court records show.

A preliminary examination was scheduled Wednesday. Miyamura has a 1-6 record after a 55-14 loss last Friday.
