OPELOUSAS - Two coaches from a high school in St. Landry Parish have been arrested on marijuana charges.

The Sheriff's Office says North Central High School athletic director and basketball coach Clarence "Butch" Fontenot and football coach Abdule Levier were arrested after drug dogs sniffed out marijuana in their cars Thursday night.

St. Landry Sheriff Bobby Guidroz said in a written statement Friday that the sheriff's office narcotics team went to the school after receiving an anonymous tip.

Neither the coaches nor the St. Landry School Board have commented publicly. Calls to the school board office were unanswered Saturday.
