ARLINGTON, Wash. (AP) – A Little League coach in Washington state has been accused of using some of his players to help in a break-in.

Snohomish County prosecutors charged 31-year-old George Spady Jr. on Monday with burglary.

Court documents allege he took his son, a nephew and another player from the team with him when he broke into a vacant Arlington shop and took overhead lights and other items.

Police say Spady’s son crawled through a vent on the back side of the store and unlocked the door for his father, who then coached the boys to grab things from inside.

One boy told his stepfather who called deputies.

The Everett Herald reports the boys are not expected to be charged.
