The Northwest Herald has an article about a big Kane County drug bust by state, local and federal officials on the North Central Narcotics Task Force.
Among those arrested was Huntley resident Joe Lichay. Huntley Youth Football lists him as a 2008 coach for the middleweight PAC – White team (click to enlarge).
An email from an official of the youth organization said,
“It is very embarrassing since he was a long time member; I guess you never know. All I can say is he did pass a background check prior to this.”
Lichay and Elginite William Santana are the only local men arrested. A ton of marijuana was involved, according to the Chicago Tribune.
The Huntley School District 158 Board is the first in the area to call for testing those in extracurricular activities for drugs. The board and administration did manage to stall implementation until after last fall’s football season.
