The investigation began two months ago, per the news. And it culminated with a traffic stop. Indeed, the cops stopped the coach in a Malaga business parking lot. The cops arrested the high school boys’ soccer coach and a passenger in the vehicle. A search of the coach’s home resulted in the alleged seizure of two pounds of marijuana candies. Additionally, the cops allegedly seized $10,000 in cash, per the news. Remarkably, the news does not divulge the details of the two-month investigation. Furthermore, the news does not reveal why the police executed enforcement action at a local business as opposed to the coach’s residence. Furthermore, the news does not indicate how the police can prove the candy contains marijuana.
