The football coach at Vanden High School in Fairfield was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of stealing thousands of dollars from athletic fundraisers, local police say.

The alleged activities of Levon Haynes, 42, were brought to the attention of his high school's police school resource officer on Aug. 12, Fairfield police Lt. Stephen Crane said.

Major crimes detectives took on the case and following their investigation, Crane said search warrants were served at two Fairfield addresses Tuesday. Haynes was arrested without incident during the search on the 2900 block of Shasta Drive.

The coach, who is also a Vanden campus monitor, was booked into Solano County Jail for embezzlement, Crane said.

The investigation continues. Detectives did not give a more precise dollar figure of the amount Havnes is suspected of stealing nor how the funds were taken.
