Coach caught green-handed in locker theft

Posted: Updated:
Fla. (NBC News) - A Florida high school gym coach is accused of having sticky fingers.

Rodney Barnes, 43, was arrested Monday and charged with grand theft for allegedly stealing from student lockers at New Smyrna Beach High School over a period of several months. He refused to answer questions as he bonded out of jail overnight.

School officials used an ultraviolet theft detection kit to allegedly catch Barnes.

They coated bait money with an invisible substance, had a student stash the money in his locker and then when the money disappeared officials checked everyone's hands with the light. Officials said Barnes' hands lit up.
