HS Football Coach Arrested for Stealing Player’s Watch, Pawning it for $100

The real question is: what kind of kid still wears a watch (and an expensive one to boot) these days? They all just check their cell phones for the current time, assuming they’re not texting at tht time.

Oregon City High School football coach Kevin Strasser was arrested Tuesday in connection with a watch that a former student reported as stolen last year. Strasser was charged with official misconduct and first-degree theft, a class C felony — a crime that means the pilfered item is valued at more than $1,000. Police said the watch was found at a Clackamas County pawn shop after the student lost it at the end of last school year. They identified the suspect as Strasser, who is also a teacher at Oregon City and arrested at his Milwaukie home. Staff members at A1 Pawn Shop in Glandstone said Strasser sold the watch for less than $100. The watch was an Ice Time brand. The company’s website lists watches that cost anywhere from a few hundred dollars up to $34,999.
