ASHEVILLE, NC (FOX Carolina) -
An Asheville teen was arrested after he stole money that was donated to help a high school football coach battling cancer, Buncombe County deputies said Friday.
Deputies said that on April 26, they were called to Erwin High School after someone noticed that $200 that had been collected to help coach Bucky Tarr had been stolen.
According to the Asheville Citizen-Times, Tarr has been stricken with cancer twice in the past 17 months. A group called "Team Tarr" printed up T-shirts and sold them to raise money for the beloved coach's treatment.
On Friday, deputies said they arrested 18-year-old Corey Castaneda in connection with the theft. He was charged with misdemeanor larceny and trespassing and was released from jail on bond.
The Citizen-Times reported that Tarr has been coaching for 31 years, most recently as an assistant with the Erwin High Warriors.
