Assistant Calhoun High School football coach Paul Goodrich, Jr., 48, has been issued felony charges related to manufacturing marijuana with intent to deliver.

Police discovered four trash bags containing the substance at two locations, one location being his residence, the criminal complaint indicating "more than 15 (5) grams of marijuana."

The criminal complaint says the marijuana discovery occurred after State Police and the Calhoun Sheriff's Department were charging his son Paul Goodrich III, 24, for operating a meth lab at his Russett residence.

A 911 call reported a disturbance at Russett, saying young Goodrich was tearing up the residence and Sgt. O. S. Starsick of the Grantsville Detachment and Sheriff Allen Parsons and Chief Deputy Carl Ballengee responded.

Police discovered several "shake and bake" meth containers.

The criminal complaint says officers discovered "pseudophedrine (used in meth-making) and a hypodermic needle" on younger Goodrich's person, after which he told police he was "doing and cooking meth and was ready to go to jail."

He then told police his father was growing marijuana.

The elder Goodrich, according to the complaint, admitted to the officers he was in possession of marijuana, after which officers went to his property.

Growing equipment, pots, seeds and fertilizer were also found next to the house occupied by young Goodrich, which belongs to the elder Goodrich.

Goodrich was being hired yearly in a assistant coaching position at Calhoun High School for $1 for what was once called "volunteer coach," according to Superintendent of Schools Roger Propst.

Preliminary hearings will be held next week for both men in Calhoun Magistrate Court.
