Published:
HELENA, Mont. — Police in Montana say former Washington State and ex-NFL quarterback Ryan Leaf broke into an acquaintance's home and stole a bottle of prescription painkillers.
Central Montana Drug Task Force Commander Chris Hickman says he has reason to believe Leaf may have done the same to others, and he is asking other victims to come forward.
Leaf was arrested Friday in Great Falls after police searched him and his vehicle and found 28 oxycodone pills, a narcotic painkiller for which he did not have a prescription.
Leaf was charged with burglary, possession of a dangerous drug and theft. He is free on $76,000 bond.
Hickman says the arrest capped a monthlong investigation that began when postal workers provided a tip that Leaf was receiving small, cash-on-delivery packages once or twice a week worth $500 or more.
